The Secret Revealed to Joseph

The Secret Revealed to Joseph
©2011 C. Brent Cloyd

About the birth of Christ men have much to say,
But the Bible says it came about this way.
Joseph proposed and to Mary was engaged,
But then he received news that left him enraged.

She was pregnant, Joseph, surprised discovered.
A cloud of fear and shame around her hovered.
Joseph knew that to him it did not belong.
His natural response was she had done wrong.

Embarrassed, Joseph needed to save some face,
Yet wanted to spare Mary public disgrace.
It was decided they would quietly divorce,
Live separate lives on a different course.

Considering this option, he had a dream,
An angel revealed “things were not as they seem”.
The child she carries was not seeded by man.
The life planted in her was by divine plan.

That conceived in her is by the Holy Ghost,
A gift from on high, wrapped by the Lord of host
Now take her as your wife and be not afraid.
The prophets foretold that this plan had been made

A son will be born; Jesus will be His name,
A much needed savior who will merit fame.
Misunderstood, earth’s favor He will not win,
But He will save man from penalty of sin.

His true identity known only by few,
His childhood well-being I entrust to you,
His worth and character men will much discuss.
They will call Him Immanuel, “God with us”.
