Joseph by Wilburn & Wilburn

Song Lyrics

by Wilburn & Wilburn

Album: Here Comes Sunday

Joseph, did you want to pack your tools
Head to some place where nobody whispered
"There goes Mary's fool"
Joseph, did you look up and raise your hands
Crying, "God, You know I've always tried
To be a righteous man", Joseph

Joseph, did you lie awake confused
Thinking 'bout that small town scandal
And what love's supposed to do
Joseph, if you felt you'd been betrayed
Still, you didn't walk by feelings
You chose to walk by faith, Joseph

You couldn't take her as your wife
But wouldn't let harm come to her
You looked beyond the shame
And stood between her and an angry world
And you made no accusations
So no one could raise a stone
Did you feel so hurt, confused and all alone

Joseph, did you wake up and want to scream
"God, are You really speaking
Through some angel in a dream"
Joseph, did it all just seem absurd
That your wife might be the one
To fulfill the prophet's words, Joseph

You denied yourself for others
Obeyed when nothing made much sense
You were her strength and shelter
On the road to Bethlehem
And kneeling by the manger
Bathed in soft starlight
Did you know whose face you touched
That holy night

Joseph, I hope to sit with you one day
Hear you tell me all about the choices
You were called to make
'Cause Joseph, it was you and no one else
God trusted to take care
Of Mary and Himself, Joseph
Oh, Joseph, Joseph
