Brandon Heath - Just A Girl
From the album Christmas Is Here
I wonder if you've heard the storyOf little fame and lesser gloryThe night the keeper of the innIn the little town of BethlehemEncountered Joseph and his MaryAbout to birth the Savior of the worldHis wife said, go and see who's knockingHe ran down to the gate, unlocked itThe moment he heard Mary's cryHe couldn't look them in the eyeDenied them and went back to bedWhen his wife asked who was thereHe said, I don't knowJust a girlJust a couple gypsies begging at the doorTold ‘em we don't have room for any moreAnd closed the doorIt was just a girlHe tried to sleep but wasn't ableHe snuck out to the dirty stableThe two had found for coveringAnd laid her in her sufferingThe keeper knelt outside the barnAnd in the light of that great starHe prayed, what have I doneHe's just a babeJust minutes old there trembling in the hayI could have found a room for them to stayI'm so ashamedHe's just a babeThere was no robe, there was no crownThe shepherds stood on royal groundThe keeper wept for what he'd doneHe turned away God's own SonJust a KingJust a million angels crowding in to seeJesus there among humanityJust a babeJust minutes old there trembling in the hayStaring at his mother in the faceShe's just a girlJust a girlDoes she even know that she just changed the worldDoes she even know that He will save the worldDoes Mary know that He will save the worldShe's just a girlJust a girlJust a girlPublishing: © 2013 Haidaway Music (BMI) / Writers of Sea Gayle Music / Itchy Baby Music (BMI)Writer(s): Brandon Heath, Lee Thomas Miller
