Just a Girl

Then Mary said, “Behold the maidservant of the Lord! Let it be to me according to your word.” And the angel departed from her. Luke 1:38

“Just A Girl”

I wonder if you’ve heard the story
Of little fame and lesser glory
The night the keeper of the inn
The little town of Bethlehem
Encountered Joseph and his Mary
About to birth the Savior of the world

His wife said go and see who’s knocking
He ran down to the gate unlocked it
The moment he heard Mary’s cry
He couldn’t look them in the eye
Denied them and went back to bed
When his wife asked who was there
He said I don’t know

Just a girl
Just a couple gypsies begging at the door
Told them we don’t have room for anymore
And closed the door
It was just a girl

He tried to sleep and wasn’t able
He snuck out to the dirty stable
The two had found for covering
And laid her in her suffering
The keeper knelt outside the barn
And in the light of that great star
He prayed what have I done

He’s just a babe
Just minutes old there trembling in the hay
I could have found a room for them to stay
I’m so ashamed
He’s just a babe

There was no robe
There was no crown
The shepherds stood
On royal ground
The keeper wept
For what he’d done
He turned away
God’s own Son

Just a King
Just a million angels crowding in to see
Jesus there among humanity

Just a babe
Just minutes old there trembling in the hay
Staring at his mother in the face
She’s just a girl

Just a girl
Does she even know that she just changed the world
Does she even know that He will save the world
Does Mary know that He will save the world
She’s just a girl
Just a girl
Just a girl
