Joseph’s Song

WheDSC_0001 - Version 2n I wrote Joseph’s Song, I was thinking about the story of the birth of Christ from the point of view of Joseph.  There are lots of Christmas songs out there but very few have anything to say about Joseph.  The task he was given must have seemed overwhelming to him.  Still, he stayed with Mary, accepted this responsibility, and helped raise Jesus.  Given his time in history and the culture in which he lived, this is pretty amazing!  I feel sure that he called upon  God for help and strength many times.
