>>  Repeat:
He's got the east and the west        in his hands

He's got sufi and zen                 in his hands

He's got playful and serious          in his hands

He's got heaven and hell              in his hands

He's got Krishna and Jesus            in his hands

He's got Lao Tzu and Confucius        in his hands

He's got the lovers and the celibates in his hands

He's got the inner and the outer      in his hands

He's got joy and sorrow               in his hands

He's got order and chaos              in his hands

He's got bliss and frustration        in his hands

He's got tears and laughter           in his hands

He's got all God's children           in his hands
