"Over My Head"

       
  1. Over my head, I hear music in the air,
Over my head, I hear music in the air,
Over my head, I hear music in the air.
There must be a God somewhere.
 
 
2.
Over my head, I see angels in the air,
Over my head, I see angels in the air,
Over my head, I see angels in the air,
There must be a God somewhere.
 
  3. Over my head, I see Jesus in the air,
Over my head, I see Jesus in the air,
Over my head, I see Jesus in the air,
There must be a God somewhere.
 
  4. Over my head, I hear music in the air,
Over my head, I hear music in the air,
Over my head, I hear music in the air.
There must be a God somewhere.
