josephandmary bill canonico 1111

stuck out on the street with nowhere to stay
as the cold silent night swallowed up the day
needing a place to rest
joseph tried his best
but there was nothing

stuck out on the street with nowhere to go
far away from anyone they know
joseph prayed a prayer
that his true love might be spared
from pain and suffering

mary i’m so sorry, I don’t know what to do
she said -
that’s okay honey, god’s gonna see us through
it’s gonna work out fine, just like the angel said
it’ll be all right

stuck out on the street with nowhere to turn
such a lot to lose, such a lot to learn
down in a dusty barn, trying to stay calm
as they lay waiting

stuck out on the street with nowhere to go
a baby cries - his mother whispers low
angels bow and sing praise to the newborn king
heaven celebrating

mary i keep wond’ring, what does the future hold?
she said -
this trail of tears, it’s gonna lead us to streets of gold
and love forever, coming soon, soon, soon, soon…
