A Strange Way To Save the World

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 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
