Dirt On My Hands

Lyrics

Print-Friendly Lyrics

Sometimes it’s hard to do a good deed
In a tough situation for a friend in need
No one would notice if I shy away
Steer clear of the problems he’s facing today

But Heaven above has an all-seeing eye
And it wouldn’t be right to look away and walk by
If I really love Jesus then I understand
I’m gonna have to get a little dirt on my hands.

So I won’t play it safe; I won’t walk away
I won’t turn a blind eye to a friend today
I wanna go the extra mile; Doin’ all that I can
Helpin’ my fellow man;
Even if I have to get a little dirt on my hands

There’s no doubt some people will say
That’s it none of my business; stay out of the fray
But to know what’s good in me and leave undone
Is just as much a sin as my very worst one

When a brother is down and the goin’ gets rough
With the good Lord’s help I’m gonna help him back up
I’ll take off the gloves, help him fight like a man
Yet, I’m gonna have to get a little dirt on my hands

So I won’t play it safe; I won’t walk away
I won’t turn a blind eye to a friend today
I wanna go the extra mile; Doin’ all that I can
Helpin’ my fellow man;
Even if I have to get a little dirt on my hands

I won’t walk away; I won’t turn a blind eye to a friend today
I wanna go the extra mile; Doin’ all that I can
Helpin’ my fellow man
Even if I have to get a little dirt on my hands

Even if I have to get a little dirt on my hands
Even if I have to get a little dirt on my hands
