In 1970, a Canadian band named Ocean released a song that would become an instant classic: PUT YOUR HAND IN THE HAND. Ocean’s version of the song would hit #2 on Billboard being the first-ever CANCON song to do so. It would go on to be recorded by Anne Murray, Paul Anka, Joan Baez, Elvis and so many others. Fittingly, 50 years after racing up the charts, one of the original members of OCEAN, Juno-award winner Jeff Jones has partnered with Juno-award winning producer Ken Friesen, to release a new version of this song.
In these times of uncertainty, we take comfort in a familiar refrain “take a look at yourself and you can look at others differently … “
So raise your hands to the sky, hand in the hand with the man from Galilee.
