131. I Know the Lord's Laid His Hands on Me

Refrain:
O I know the Lord, I know the Lord,
I know the Lord’s laid His hands on me.

1 Did ever you see the like before
I know the Lord’s laid His hands on me,
King Jesus preaching to the poor?
I know the Lord’s laid His hands on me. [Refrain]

2 O wasn’t that a happy day
I know the Lord’s laid His hands on me,
When Jesus washed my sins away?
I know the Lord’s laid His hands on me. [Refrain]

3 Some seek the Lord and don’t seek Him right.
I know the Lord’s laid His hands on me,
They fool all day and pray at night.
I know the Lord’s laid His hands on me. [Refrain]

4 My Lord’s done just what He said,
I know the Lord’s laid His hands on me,
He’s healed the sick and raised the dead.
I know the Lord’s laid His hands on me. [Refrain]
