I’m sure he must have been surprised
At where this road had taken him
‘Cause never in a million lives
Would he have dreamed of Bethlehem.

And standing at the manger
He saw with his own eyes
The message from the angel come to life.
And Joseph said…

Why me, I’m just a simple man of trade?
Why Him with all the rulers in the world?
Why here inside this stable filled with hay?
Why her, she’s just an ordinary girl?
Now, I’m not one to second guess what angels have to say.
But this is such a strange way to save the world.

To think of how it could have been
If Jesus had come as He deserved.
There would have been no Bethlehem
No lowly shepherds at His birth.

But Joseph knew the reason the love
Had to reach so far
And as he held the Savior in his arms
He must have thought…

Why me, I’m just a simple man of trade?
Why Him with all the rulers in the world?
Why here inside this stable filled with hay?
Why her, she’s just an ordinary girl?

Now, I’m not one to second guess what angels have to say.
But this is such a strange way to save the world.

Now, I’m not one to second guess what angels have to say.
But this is such a strange way to save the world.

This is such a strange way,
Such a strange way,
Such a strange way
To save the world.
