PUT YOUR HAND IN THE HAND (OF THE MAN FROM GALILEE)

Latest update on 28/10/2013

Artist: Anne Murray
Author: Gene McLellan
Label: Capitol
Year: 1970

On Canadian lp Honey, Wheat & Laughter. In his 1961 version of Water Boy, pianist Don Shirley makes a clear shift after 1'40" to the melody line of Put Your Hand In The Hand. As the B-side of Cadence single Freedom (I'm On My Way), Don Shirley's Water Boy became a top 40 hit US, so McLellan might have known it and might even have thought it belongs to the public domain.
