LyricsEdit

He was her man, she was his wife
And late one winter night
He knelt by her
As she gave birth
But it wasn’t his child
It wasn’t his child

Yet still he took
Him as his own
And as he watched him grow
It brought him joy
He loved that boy
But it wasn’t his child
It wasn’t his child

But like a father
He was strong and kind and good
And I believe he did his best
Well it wasn’t easy for him
But he did all he could
His son was different from the rest
It wasn’t his child
It wasn’t his child

And when the boy became a man
He took His Father’s hand
And soon the world
Would all know why
It wasn’t his child
It wasn’t his child

And like His Father
He was strong and kind and good
And I believe He did His best
Well it wasn’t easy for Him
But He did all He could
He grew up with His hands in wood
And He died with His hands in wood
He was God’s child
He was God’s child

He was her man
She was his wife
And late one winter night
He knelt by her
As she gave birth
But it wasn’t his child
He was God’s child
