Read Dave Clark's article about writing A Strange Way to Save the World with Don Koch and Mark Harris.

A Strange Way to Save the World has been covered by a diverse range of artists, including Twila Paris, Jump 5, Michael Crawford (Phantom of the Opera) and Rascal Flatts.

I'm sure he must have been surprised
At where this road had taken him
'Cause never in a million lives
Would he have dreamed of Bethlehem

And standing at the manger
He saw with his own eyes
The message from the angel come to life
And Joseph said

Why me?
I'm just a simple man of trade
Why Him?
With all the rulers in the world
Why here?
Inside this stable filled with hay?
Why her?
She's just an ordinary girl
Now I'm not one to second-guess
What angels have to say
But this is such a strange way to save the world

To think of how it could have been
If Jesus had come as He deserved
There would have been no Bethlehem
No lowly shepherds at His birth

But Joseph knew the reason
Love had to reach so far
And as he held the Savior in his arms
He must have thought

Why me?
I'm just a simple man of trade
Why Him?
With all the rulers in the world
Why here?
Inside this stable filled with hay?
Why her?
She's just an ordinary girl
Now I'm not one to second-guess
What angels have to say
But this is such a strange way to save the world

Now, I'm not one to second-guess
What angels have to say
But this is such a strange way to save the world

This is such a strange way
Such a strange way
A strange way to save the world
