The well-known Christian gospel ... here's a short and a long version of the common lyrics for anyone who should not know ...

Anyway, Andrew extended these versions when quoting from it at Reading Festival 1991 by He's got the Tomahawk Missiles ... in his hands! ...

straightly followed by Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life... and 1969.

A recording of this unique presentation is featured on both the Brothers & Sisters bootleg cassette and the Brothers And Sisters bootleg CD.

It also forms an important part of the Live Reading '91 limited edition 7" picture dics box.   * Our thanks go to sisterstekland for the lovely 2-cam video here below...

The Sisters of Mercy - Live at Reading Festival, England, 25 August 1991
He´s Got The Whole World In His Hands / Always Look On The Bright Side Of Live / 1969

Lyrics

Short Version
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 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 the tiny little baby in His hands,
|: He´s got the the tiny little baby in His hands, :|
He´s got the whole world in His hands.

He´s got you and me, brother, in His hands,
|: He´s got you and me, brother, in His hands, :|
He´s got the whole world in His hands.

He's got ev'rybody here in His hands.
|: He's got ev'rybody here in His hands. :|
He's got the whole world in His hands.

Long Version
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 earth and sky in his hands;
He's got the night and day in his hands;
He's got the sun and moon 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 the whole world in His hands.
He's got the land and sea in his hands;
He's got the wind and rain in his hands;
He's got the spring and fall 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 the whole world in His hands.
He's got the young and old in his hands;
He's got the rich and poor in his hands;
Yes, he's got ev'ry one 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 the whole world in His hands.
