Lyr Req: Gospel song, bluesy

Subject: Gospel song, bluesy
From: Gary T

Just heard part of a bluesy/R&B sounding gospel song on a local radio show, but I couldn't be sure of the words. It sounded like:

Get out (off?) the track(?) and mess(?) with Jesus,
Get out (off?) the track(?) and mess(?) with God,
Satan's got me, and holding me fast
Get out (off?) the track(?) and mess(?) with God.

Of course those words don't make sense to me, so I bet I really misheard them. And I'd like to have the full lyrics. Anyone recognize this? Please help if you can.

I'll keep an eye out for it. Have not seen it anywhere so far.

Wow! A Google search on "Satan's got me" sure turned up some weird stuff! But I digress...

I wonder if the first line should be "Get out of the boat and trust in Jesus"? That would be a reference to Matthew 14, a likely topic for a gospel song. That and other similar phrases can be found at various places on the 'Net. Unfortunately, they all seem to be parts of sermons, not song lyrics. Here are some variants:

"... and come to Jesus"
"... and follow Jesus"
"... and go to Jesus"
"... and look unto Jesus"
"... and walk to Jesus"
"... and walk toward Jesus"
"... and walk towards Jesus"
"... and walk with Jesus"

You can find all these by using Google and putting "Get out of the boat and * * Jesus" (in quotes) in the search box. Use one asterisk to stand for one word, or 2 asterisks to stand for 2 words. I hope this helps somehow.
