Go To Joseph

When you see dark forces hovering over
To snatch away Jesus from you
Go to Joseph he will show you
The safest road to Egypt in your dreams

Go To Joseph

By Joe Palathunkal

When you are at the life’s crossroads
In confusion and fear
To accept or not the person
Whom God has chosen for you
To be with you on your life’s journey
Go to Joseph he will gift you
A book of wisdom
That will blossom in your heart
The lily of assurance.

When you see dark forces hovering over
To snatch away Jesus from you
Go to Joseph he will show you
The safest road to Egypt in your dreams
Or perhaps in your heart like a whisper
That has the power to enable you
To be with Jesus and his mission
To usher in a new heaven and new earth.



When you don’t know where to go
Whether to Judea or to Galilee
In the labyrinth of your life
Go to Joseph he will warn you about

Where perverted rulers lie in wait
To pounce upon your soul
And the Sea of Galilee will ripple to you
A welcome to sail through safely.



When you don’t have a house to live
Go to Joseph he will tell you
Where to find a fitting abode
Provided you carry his son
Always in your heart.
Or when hunger stares at you
And bread eludes you
Go to Joseph who holds a chisel and hammer
And he will tell you how to bake bread
Out of your sweat with your hands and mind.


When without sleep you turn on your bed
And eyelids refuse to close
And nights become a torture
Go to Joseph he will give you
Deep restful sleep with a lot of dreams
Where you will hear the voice of God
That turns into a pen to rewrite your history
And sometimes even the history of the world.
