Put My Hand on Heaven's Plow

Download Song

Get up on your feet
Get up on your feet, feet, feet

Put my hand on a heaven's plow
Lord, Lord, Lord, won't you show me how
And when I go down
If the plow is still in my hand
I'll be plowin' the promised land

Put my hand on a heaven's spade
Lord, Lord, Lord, how the children prayed
And when I go down
If the spade is still in my hand
I be spadin' the promised land

Good Lord smote that fire out
Wasn't that a mighty day
The stone that was the stone of doubt
The stone done roll away
The stone roll away, little sister, little sister
The stone roll away, little sister, little sister
The stone roll away, little sister sufferings of every kind
'Til got heaven on my mind

Put my hand on a heaven's plow
Lord, Lord, Lord, won't you show me how
And when I go down
If the plow is still in my hand
I'll be plowin' the promised land

Put my hand on a heaven's spade
Lord, Lord, Lord, how the children prayed
And when I go down
If the spade is still in my hand
I be spadin' the promised land

In my troubles, Lord, walk with me
Gwine to war agin de debbel, Lord, walk with me
When the big bell's a-tollin', Lord walk with me
Almighty! Glory! Mercy! Lordy!

From a heaven on to Lebanon to Galilee
River Jordan flow slow and shallowly
Let me shiver in the river, Lord, set me free
The forgiver in the river will deliver me

The soul may be sullied
With a melancholy malady
Of jealousy and fallacy
Of malice and brutality
The soul may be sullied by
The burdens of reality
But man is made to clear it
With his spirituality
And though eventuality
We face our own fatality
Purity will palliate
The surety of mortality
A person's personality
Must master his morality
To avert eternal burning
On account of a technicality

Put my hand on a heaven's plow
Lord, Lord, Lord, won't you show me how
And when I go down
If the plow is still in my hand
I'll be plowin' the promised land

Put my hand on a heaven's spade
Lord, Lord, Lord, how the children prayed
And when I go down
If the spade is still in my hand
I be spadin' the promised land

Put my hand on a heaven's plow
Lord, Lord, Lord, won't you show me how
And when I go down
If the plow is still in my hand
I'll be plowin' the promised land

Put my hand on a heaven's spade
Lord, Lord, Lord, how the children prayed
And when I go down
If the spade is still in my hand
I be spadin' the promised land
