Joseph's Song Lyrics

Michael Card
Chorus 1
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
Chorus 2
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
Chorus 2
Chorus 1

This is my most favorite song of Christmas and I reflect on how Joseph must have felt being instantly put in this role of fatherhood. He didn't run away - He rather accepted it with dignity & Grace.

This song always brings tears to my eyes! Joseph asks How can a simple carpenter be father to the Son of God? So moving, everyone really loves it and is moved by it. A beautiful, beautiful song!

I had the priveldge of singing this song at a Christmas concert. The congregation's reaction was spectacular and everyone could relate the the emotions felt by Joseph.
