Joseph's Lullaby

This quiet tune just came on my Pandora Christmas station (which was otherwise rockin!). It caught my attention. And, wow, what a gorgeous song. How have I not heard this before?

Telling such a beautiful story. I can just picture sweet Baby Jesus and his sweet daddy. Christmas is such a magical time, and pretty amazing to picture Jesus as a tiny, helpless little newborn. This song helps to remind you. Happy (almost) Birthday, Baby Jesus.

Joseph's Lullaby by Mercy Me
Go to sleep my Son
This manger for your bed
You have a long road before You
Rest Your little head

Can You feel the weight of Your glory?
Do You understand the price?
Or does the Father guard Your heart for now
So You can sleep tonight?

Go to sleep my Son
Go and chase Your dreams
This world can wait for one more moment
Go and sleep in peace

I believe the glory of Heaven
Is lying in my arms tonight
But Lord, I ask that He for just this moment
Simply be my child

Go to sleep my Son
Baby, close Your eyes
Soon enough You'll save the day
But for now, dear Child of mine
Oh my Jesus, Sleep tight
