Reflection on Baby Jesus from "Jesus Christ Superstar"

Joseph, are you sleeping?  Joseph, I'm afraid.
Joseph, can I live up to the choice that God has made?
Jesus, can You tell me, here upon my knee,
What kind of mother will I be?

What can I give to You, You, made from miracles,
That God has given me to keep?
I can't give much to you, You, made from miracles,
But I can hold you as you sleep.

What can you learn from me, You, made from miracles,
When I've so much to learn from You?
What can a girl like me offer to a miracle,
Who taught me miracles come true?

Tell me how to guide You....tell me what to say...
Tell me how to show You how to show the World the way....
How to please the angels, watching from above,
When all I have to give You is my love.

But if it's love You need...You made from miracles,
Then take my hand and hold it tight.
And I will give You love, sweet little miracle..
Oh, what a miracle that God has given us tonight.
