Did You See Him – Joseph

Here is the second piece from a little Christmas program I have written. These poetic monologues are dispersed among songs and other symbols of the Christmas Season. I hope these little writings will help turn your attention to my Savior who is Christ the Lord.

 

Did You See Him – Joseph

 

Joseph

 

Did you see Him? I did

I was by Mary’s side

From before He was born

Until His eyes opened wide

 

My first thoughts, to leave her

My fear almost won

But the Lord then assured me

That this was God’s Son

 

We took the long journey

To Bethlehem far

Not knowing that others

Were watching a star

                          

So many had gathered

As the law had required

Her time was so close

And she was so tired

 

The man said “No room”

With concern on his face

But out in his stable

He’d make her a place

 

I was not quite sure

That this could be right

But no more could I do

We were too tired to fight

 

So there we both stayed

And then the child came

I looked at God’s Son

I gave Jesus His name

 

 

Yes, I saw God’s Son

Asleep on the Hay

But for you there’s a question

Do you see Him today?

 

 

See You SONday
