From: Jim Krause

Dunno. Here's the lyric.

THE QUIET FAITH OF MAN
Bill Staines
©1981 Mineral River Music, BMI

1. 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 of knowing
And whispered something softly in its ear,
Perhaps a little prayer to help the growing,
Perhaps a word of comfort through the fear.

CHORUS
You can trust the moon to move the mighty oceans.
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.

2. A tractor makes its way along a fence line,
The seeds are dropped precisely in the row.
And if the rain is kind and the wind don't take the topsoil
Before too long the crops will start to show
Now the farmer sees the fields around him ripen
And whispers something low beneath his breath.
Perhaps a little prayer to help the growing,
Perhaps a word of thanks for all the rest. CHORUS

3. 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 her eyes upon the heavens,
They're all looking for a way to make it through CHORUS



There. That ought to get it.
Jim

Yes,I think that's what I did. I'm just tickled to death to have them.

Anybody care to contribute chords? It seems like it could do with or without certain minors and stuff.
