Joseph's Promise--Lyrics

By Jim Downer

CHORUS 1 I will be his earthly father. I will teach him all I know. I will be his earthly father. Iíll protect him as he grows.

VERSE Why, oh God, have I been chosen To watch over heavenís son? How can hands that saw and hammer Hold this child, holy one?

CHORUS 2 I will be his earthly father. I will shelter him from harm. I will be his earthly father. I will keep him safe and warm.

BRIDGE Is he king? Is he savior? Is he really the Divine? Heís a boy And Iíll love him, Raise him as a son of mine.

CHORUS 3 I will be his earthly father. All my doubts have been released. I am Jesusí earthly father, Guardian of the prince of peace.
