Story behind the song
This is the first version of this theme written for the Fort Worth Songwriter's Association annual Christmas song contest. The bluegrass version won first place. This is an alternate version and was written first. there are some things I like better about it. I won't know for sure which one works the best until I do a professional demo of each. This was done on a simple 4 track Tascam portable recorder.
Lyrics
Joseph of Nazareth tell me your dream How Mary the virgin delivers a king? And how you will silence the voices of shame And raise a young savior and give him your name Joseph of Nazareth tell me your dream How a young virgin will deliver a King Joseph of Nazareth will you provide Passage to Bethlehem for your new bride She carries the hope of the world to this place Vessel of innocence, mother of Grace Joseph of Nazareth tell me your dream How a village so humble will welcome a King Joseph of Nazareth will you obey Escape into Egypt and hide Him away The soldiers of Herod have come to destroy To slaughter the innocent babies and boys Joseph of Nazareth tell me your dream How you will shelter our Savior, our king Joseph of Nazareth will you return To your home in the hills where Jesus will learn The trade of his Father, the Carpenter who Builds oceans and forest and mountains …and you Joseph of Nazareth, tell me your dream How all of God’s people will Soon praise the King
