Strange Way To Save The World

Play

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 an simple man of trade
Why him
With all the rulers in the world
And 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

Think of how it could have been
If Jesus had come as He deserved
There would have been no Bethlehem
No lonely shepherds at His birth
But Joseph knew the reason
Love had to reach so far
And as he held his Saviour in his arms
He must have thought

Why me
I'm just an simple man of trade
Why him
With all the rulers in the world
And 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
Such a strange way
To save the world
