CHORUS : 1

JESUS.....PLEASE TAKE MY HAND
AND JESUS.....DO YOU STILL HAVE A PLAN?
JESUS.....BE QUICK, I CAN'T STAND
JESUS.... LET'S GO TO YOUR LAND

VERSE: 1

E G E
A SIMPLE MAN, SON OF A CARPENTER
WALKED AMONGST US TO SPREAD THE WORD
TRAVELLED FAR AND WIDE, ANYWHERE TO BE HEARD
BUILT A FOLLOWING, THEY SAY EVEN HER
AT THE HEART OF THE MESSAGE, JUST TEN SIMPLE RULES....TO:CHORUS

VERSE: 2

E G E
NOW IS NOW AND ANYTHING BUT SIMPLE
THE POWER OF A CHURCH THAT HAS THEIR OWN WORD
AND MANY TODAY, STILL THINK YOU'RE STILL HERE
WITH A WORLD IN DESPAIR, DO YOU STILL REALLY CARE?
TIME'S RUNNING LOW, GOOD TIME FOR YOU TO BE HEARD....TO:CHORUS

VERSE: 3

E G E
TO BE OPEN, I NEVER THOUGHT YOU WERE SUPREME
I FELT YOU WERE JUST HUMAN, BUT I LIKED YOUR DREAM
OF SIMPLE RULES THAT CARVE OUT HONOR AND VALUE
AND STRONG FAMILY LOVE, JUST LIKE YOU TWO
MARY AND YOU, THIS WORLD SURE NEEDS YOU ....TO:CHORUS

The guitar and vocals are performed and recorded extremely well. The guitar has a great wide clean and warm sound. The vocals are inviting, the song structure has elements of country, and folk. Good vocal emotion and intonation.

- Tim Juliano
Nice folk feel and sound, puts me in mind of Bob Dylan. You don't here folk song like this anymore, so I think it's awesome!!!

You have a nice voice and I liked your guitar playing.
I like the tune to this song. It is catchy.
I liked in the chorus that the last word in each line rhymed (hand, plan, stand, land)
