African American Children's Songs

        | HSW

He's Got the Whole World in His Hands

He's got the whole world in His hands,

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 wind and the rain in His hands,

The wind and the rain in His hands,

He's got the wind and the rain in His hands,

He's got the whole world in His hands.

He's got the tiny little baby in His hands,

The tiny little baby in His hands,

He's got the tiny little baby in His hands,

He's got the whole world in His hands.

He's got everybody in His hands,

Everybody in His hands,

He's got everybody in His hands,

He's got the whole world in His hands.
