Wednesday Is for Worship: “Joseph’s Lullaby”

I pray your Wednesday is a blessed one!  Whatever the circumstances, if you’ll take the time to worship today, then undoubtedly blessed your day will be, and I’ve got just the song to help you.  It’s called “Joseph’s Lullaby” by MercyMe.

It’s the only original song off MercyMe’s 2005 “The Christmas Sessions” album.  There are many, many songs focused on Mary and Jesus, but rare are those that even mention Joseph, Jesus’ adopted earthly father and the husband of Jesus’ mother Mary.  That alone makes “Joseph’s Lullaby” interesting as it explores what was perhaps going through Joseph’s mind after the birth of Jesus.  but to me, the instrumentation and vocals are what makes this song noteworthy.  To say the least, it is beautifully arranged, capturing the tenderness and wonder of a new father holding the Messiah.

Perhaps this song is not particularly a worship song, but as you listen to and sing it, it’ll most certainly lead you to worship the newborn king to whom all laud is due!

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
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
