Joseph's Lullaby - MercyMe

In recent years I have become enamored of the song "Joseph's Lullaby," performed by MercyMe.  The melody is simple and lovely, and the lyrics poignant and beautiful.  I really love this song, and I wish I could perform it myself.  Technically speaking, nothing in the lyrics would prevent me, but the text is such that it is just more meaningful coming from a Joseph.  It's a very touching song, and I thought it an appropriate one for this Christmas Eve.

Joseph's Lullaby (MercyMe)

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
But 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 

"For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counseller, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace."  Isaiah 9:6

Happy Christmas Eve.
