Joseph's Song

This lovely song written by Michael Card is such a delightful insight into what Joseph thought when Jesus was born. A lovely prayer.

How could it be this baby in my arms
Sleeping now, so peacefully
The Son of God, the angel said
How could it be
Lord I know He's not my own
Not of my flesh, not of my bone
Still Father let this baby be
The son of my love

Father show me where I fit into this plan of yours
How can a man be father to the Son of God
Lord for all my life I've been a simple carpenter
How can I raise a king, How can I raise a king
He looks so small, His face and hands so fair
And when He cries the sun just seems to disappear
But when He laughs it shines again
How could it be

Words & Music: Michael Card

Here's a video with Michael Card singing his song.

I adore the picture of Joseph holding baby Jesus. I have never seen one of that kind before. It has always been Mary! I love it. Merry Christmas and GOD bless!
