  • 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
