Put your hand in the hand of the man who stilled the water.
Put your hand in the hand of the man who calmed the sea.
Take a look at yourself and you can look at others differently,
By puttin´ your hand in the hand of the man from Galilee.
Every time I look into the holy book I wanna tremble,
When I read about the part where a carpenter cleared the temple.
For the buyers and the sellers where no different fellas,
Than what I profess to be,
And it causes me pain to know that I´m not the gal that I should be.
Mama taught me how to pray before I reached the age of seven.
And when I´m down on my knees that´s a when I´m close to heaven.
Daddy lived his life, with two kids and a wife you do what you must do,
But he showed me enough of what it takes to get you through.
+ put your hand in the hand of the man from Galilee.

(Joan Baez)
