Ralph McTell - Hands Of Joseph

When they looked at Joseph's hands

They said, They're the hands of a carpenter

They're big and they're powerful and they're strong

They're the hands that should work in wood

And they're the hands that should work a long day

Joseph he did all those things

But he also learned how to play

He would sing about joy, sing about faith

That the people wished they had

How he heard the voice of Jesus

When the rolling sea got mad

He's a boat in the harbour, he's safe in that love

He know some day he'll be sailing above

When they looked at Joseph's hands

They said, They're the hands of a stonemason

They're big and they're powerful and they're strong

They're the hands that should work in stone

And they're the hands that should work a long day

Joseph he did all those things

But he also learned how to play

When they looked at Joseph's hands

They said, They're the hands of a fisherman

The musician and the mason-carpenter

And he's happy all the time

For they're working every day

And those old hands of Joseph

Oh how they can play.
