What I really like about this song is that it’s told from Joseph’s point of view. We have numerous songs from Mary’s point of view, and that’s fine, but considering Joseph’s role in the whole thing, it’s a shame that his side of the story is often brushed over.
Now the birth of Jesus Christ was like this: After his mother, Mary, was engaged to Joseph, before they came together, she was found pregnant by the Holy Spirit. Joseph, her husband, being a righteous man, and not willing to make her a public example, intended to put her away secretly.
But when he thought about these things, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, “Joseph, son of David, don’t be afraid to take to yourself Mary, your wife, for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit. She shall give birth to a son. You shall call his name Jesus, for it is he who shall save his people from their sins.”
Matthew 1:18-21 WEB
