This song was written and recorded by Kevin Moore (Keb’ Mo’), included on his album… Just Like You. This album was Keb’ Mo’s second album, winning him his first Grammy award.

Kevin Roosevelt Moore (born October 3, 1951), known as Keb’ Mo’, is an American blues musician and four-time Grammy Award winner. He is a singer, guitarist, and songwriter, living in Nashville, Tennessee. He has been described as “a living link to the seminal Delta blues that travelled up the Mississippi River and across the expanse of America”. His post-modern blues style is influenced by many eras and genres, including folk, rock, jazz, pop and country. The moniker “Keb Mo” was coined by his original drummer, Quentin Dennard, and picked up by his record label as a “street talk” abbreviation of his given name.

I first heard Keb’ Mo’ while passing by a TV one day while he was a guest on Rosie O’Donnell’s show, Rosie. He was great!

This song describes the blessing of turning burdens over to God in prayer.
Bible Reference… Job 22:7; Psalm 4:1; 17:6; 145:18; Jeremiah 29:12;

If your problems won’t go away, and you’re worried both night and day,
hand it over. Get on your knees and pray.
If you’re sick, feeling low; got no money… got nowhere to go,
hand it over. Get on your knees and pray.

        CHORUS:
        Hand it over! Hand it over!
        Give it up. Give it over.
        Hand it over; get on your knees and pray.
        Ain’t no mountain you can’t climb.
        Ain’t no answer you can’t find.
        All you need is a hand to hold.
        I’ll heal your body and feed your soul.

If the road is dark and you can’t find your way, just let the Spirit light the way.
Hand it over! Get on your knees and pray. (CHORUS)
