This Road Is Long

Mary:
You are a good man, Joseph
God knows that, so do I
And when he’s born our son will know
That he’s the apple of your eye
You stood firm before the gossip
You took me as your bride
And I know that God is guiding us
As to Bethlehem we ride.
This road is long, but it’s the way
This road is hard, we must not stray
For the one who made this baby
Makes the path we take today
This road is long, this road is hard
But the answer to our prayers is on the way!

Innkeeper:
Thank goodness for that census
Or our business soon would fold
No one comes to Bethlehem
These days unless they’re told.
But now the inn is filling up
We’ll have no vacancies tonight
Late arrivals sleep outside and
They best bring their own light.
This road is long, but it’s the way
This road is hard, we must not stray
For the town has royal customers
And this is where they’ll stay
This road is long, this road is hard
But the answer to our prayers is on the way!

Wise Man:
We saw that star six months ago
My wise and trusted friend
The road that we’ve been travelling
Will soon come to an end
For now we’re near Jerusalem
That’s where the King must be
And the journey will be worth it
Just a few more days, you’ll see
This road is long, but it’s the way
This road is hard, we must not stray
For the star that we have followed
Lights the path we take today
This road is long, this road is hard
But the answer to our prayers is on the way!

Innkeeper:
The King who brings these customers...

Wise Man:
The God whose star has guided us...

Mary/Joseph:
The One who made this baby
Makes the path we take today
This road is long, this road is hard
But the answer to our prayers is on the way
Yes, the answer to our prayers is on the way!
