There is a sound sample at Jim Manley's web site, and a longer one at CD Baby.

This page says: "His songs 'Spirit', 'Take Off Your Shoes' and 'Part of the Family' are included in hymnals of many churches and denominations..." Now, if we only knew which ones....

'Take Off Your Shoes' appears as hymn #651 in the Australian Anglican hymnal 'Together In Song - Australian Hymn Book II' Harper Collins: Sydney, 2005 with the melody line version set in key of B flat (with guitar chords in Melody Line Edition).
Can't find an audio sample or video anywhere. Please post here if you know somewhere.....

Jim Manley does have a recording and songbook available here:

I found lyrics here:
TAKE OFF YOUR SHOES
(Jim Manley)

Take, take off your shoes
You're standing on holy ground
Take, take off your shoes
You're standing on holy ground
The earth is the Lord's
And the fullness thereof
From the waters beneath
To the heavens above
Take, take off your shoes
You're standing on holy ground
You're standing on holy ground

On the eighth day of creation the Lord looked around
At the power plants and freeways and the trash on the ground
Plantations growing rubber where the grain should be high
You couldn't see the sun for all the smog in the sky
Well, kids, you really filled the earth, and then you subdued it
But there's nothing in my book that says you've got to pollute it
So take, take off your shoes...

You've heated up my rivers with your plants and your mills
You're killing all my oceans with your wastes and your spills
You're fishing like there'll always be an endless supply
And fighting one another for what's left to divide
You didn't want advice when I gave you dominion
But maybe now it's time you got a second opinion
So take, take off your shoes...

I dig your scientific minds but use them with care
You're breaking down my ozone layer up in the air
Your hyped-up farmings's turning southern soil into stone
And some are eating meat while some others don't even get bones
I told you to be fruitful and you sure multiplied
But the rich took all the land and never learned to divide
So, take, take off your shoes...

from the LP album cover for Take Off Your Shoes: Earth Songs and Other Celebrations, by Jim Manley
