Lyrics

He's got the whole world in his hands,
He's got the whole world in his hands,
He's got the whole world in his hands,
He's got the whole world in his hands!

He's got you & me brother in his hands,
He's got you & me brother in his hands,
He's got you & me brother in his hands,
He's got the whole world in his hands!

He's got you & me sister in his hands,
He's got you & me sister in his hands,
He's got you & me sister in his hands,
He's got the whole world in his hands!

He's got everybody here in his hands,
He's got everybody here in his hands,
He's got everybody here in his hands,
He's got the whole world in his hands!
