Faith Of Man (Bill Staines)

One Day A Babe Was Born Along The Highway
A Tiny Helpless Thing Upon The Sand
And An Okie With A Dream Out On The Byway
Took The Babe And Held It Proudly In His Hand
And The Woman Smiled A Gentle Smile A Knowin’
And Whispered Something Softly In It’s Ear
Perhaps A Little Prayer To Help The Growin’
Perhaps A Word Of Comfort Through The Fear

Chorus:
And You Can Trust The Moon To Move The Mighty Ocean
And You Can Trust The Sun To Shine Upon The Land
You Take The Little That You Know And You Do The Best You Can
And You See The Rest With The Quiet Faith Of Man

A Tractor Makes It’s Way Along The Fence Line
The Seeds Are Dropped Precisely In The Row
If The Rain Is Kind And The Wind Don’t Take The Topsoil
Before Too Long The Crops Will Start To Show
And The Farmer Sees The Fields Around Him Ripen
And Whispers Something Low Beneath His Breath
Perhaps A Little Prayer To Help The Growin’
Perhaps A Word Of Thanks For All The Rest ... Chorus

There’s A Storm Tossed Ship Tonight Out On The Water
There’s A Soul That Sails Alone Out On The Blue
There’s A Dreamer With His Eye Upon The Heavens
They’re All Lookin’ For A Way To Make It Through
