You Say Youre Aiming For The Skies


Refrain:
O give me your hand,
Give me your hand,
All I want is the love of God;
Give me your hand,
Give me your hand,
You must be loving at God’s command.

You say you’re aiming for the skies,
You must be loving at God’s command.
Why don’t you quit your telling lies?
You must be loving at God’s command. [Refrain]

You say the Lord has set your free,
You must be loving at God’s command.
Why don’t you let your neighbor be?
You must be loving at God’s command. [Refrain]

Some seek God’s face but don’t seek right,
You must be loving at God’s command.
Pray in the day but none at night,
You must be loving at God’s command. [Refrain]
