Brandon Heath - Just A Girl Lyrics

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
Just a girl

    A million angels crowding in to see
    Jesus there among humanity

    So magnificent.....

    No greater affair than the creation of the world, birth of our Savior and his death to save us all.

  2. Ashley Dyer

    I know this song is years old, but i just heard it this year when my friends performed a lyrical dance routine to it a a Church Christmas program a few weeks ago. Hearing the song almost moved me to tears. Ive gone through a lot of growth this year and God has stretched me in my faith. This song has helped me to truly understand Christmas. Ive grown up a Christian so i thought i knew it all, but i just see it differently this year. Praise God for using this song to move people, even if its half a decade later.

  3. Mary Thomas

    They’re not gypsies. They’re chosen....

  4. vidella Delveen

    all the radio station always play all I want for Christmas is you but thumbs up if you think that this is the song the world should hear a million times over

  5. Ruth Borgerding

    Sorry error it did say he will save the world .

  6. Ruth Borgerding

    Should say does she know that HE WILL SAVE THE WORLD not SHE WILL SAVE THE WORLD

  7. j so

    Thank you God for using Brandon for music.

  8. Angelica Ortiz

    my favorite part was, does she even know that she just changed the world.

  9. Hank Bressler

    i thought it was Keith Urban singing when I 1st heard it, he should sing a Keith Urban song and see how it sounds, but very nice song ...

  10. F Raposo

    When I hear the part of the Innkeper, the shame of turning away Our Blessed Mother it hits me so deep. How many times have I been so ashamed of turning away from our Lord. I am so ashamed of noty doing my part to the less fortunate. Lord please forgive me, please please Lord forgive me.

  11. Megan Slone

    I'm sure the inn keeper was ashamed, but GOD was telling something when Jesus was born in a manger. I'm leaning toward the belief Mary didn't have any pain because she didn't sin she followed GOD's word alone. God bless you all and may HE protect you from all harm always.

  12. Lisa Pensavalle

    Beautiful song
    This is Christmas
    Always makes me CRY 😭 every time I hear it

  13. Jaqueline jimenez

    I'm so tired not all gipsies are beggars stop making us like we are nothing and that we are less. I am Spanish gipsy and a Christian artist and a nurse you see God can use us too... Do your research people before you judge gipsies...

  14. Mark Devine

    JESUS is king and I love this song

  15. Imani

    What a beautiful song... It reminds me to be careful when you encounter those who might need a helping hand, you never know , they could be an angel

  16. Svitlana Ilina


  17. Svitlana Ilina

    love this song😊😄

  18. Angela Stewart

    This is a song for every day of the year! She wasn’t just a girl- she was sinless, and the mother of God. All generations will call her blessed. God never messed with her free will- he waited for her to say yes! Without her Jesus wouldn’t have been born!She deserves our honor and respect!

  19. Karl Schafer

    This is a beautiful song that could change many hearts and lives.

    This just puts hope in me

  22. Lesley Burnaugh

    I heard this song on the radio today. Of course I really liked it. So once I saw the name of the song and who it’s by. I hunted it down and found it. I have a special way of finding a song I like. That I heard on the radio. If I’m not able to see the name of the song or who it’s by. All I do is remember a lyric. That’s repeated a lot. Get onto here and put that lyric in to find the song. Once it pops up. I hunt down the one I heard on the radio. Ether way this is a really good song.

  23. Pami Perry

    Such a great song!!!!!! I just love this song!!!!!

  24. GaryEmrickProduction

    Love this!

  25. Lena Samplonius

    My new favourite Christmas song!! Awesome. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️Can’t wait to see the video!! Not one with just lyrics.

  26. amethyst_ cat

    Something I find interesting . . .
    According to the Mosaic law, a building where a woman gives birth is considered unclean. The innkeeper COULDN'T let Mary give birth in his inn or he would've had to kick everyone else out. It's cool to find little things like that, things that make you say "If this wasn't commanded, that wouldn't have happened and that prophecy wouldn't have been fulfilled."

  27. waltermclauren

    I read the first few comments and agree that here are parts that are very inspiring and thought provoking. My only problem is that there is some imagination and even unbiblical thinking. I can deal with the non-historical visit to the stable by the innkeeper, but implying that Mary saved the world goes beyond the scope of biblical teaching, She gave birth to the Savior of the world and is most blessed among women, but this goes much too far.


    Looking at the lyrics, I realize I was mistaken. Forgive me. I still wonder about saying that Mary changed the world. Through her obedience to God's will, the world was changed. Praise God! When I heard this today on the radio, it sounded like the lyrics were still "she would save the world" as in the phrase before. And my only problem now is asking Brandon to pronounce "h" with a bit more emphasis like he did in the live version. Love the song.

  28. Awesome Ally

    Top 5 favorite Christmas songs EVER!

    God bless you St.Mary....or Mom be with us....thank you for not giving up or losing we know it's possible to stay strong ..... Blessed as you among women!!! Dont ever stop writing you and your crew Brandon! God bless you all!!! The imagery ...ohhh...

  34. Human Being

    Anyone cutting onions?

  35. Justme

    This song makes me cry. My family rejected me and I can relate about being on the outside just coping with what the world does to each other. We should weep and hard.

  36. Karen Haskins

    We saw you do this last month in CT...I got goosebumps from it then and every time I have listened to it since! Beautiful song! Thank you for sharing God's Love with us!!

  37. Roberta Kennedy

    Such a sweet song!

  38. Fredy Rodriguez

    this song is something that truly touched my heart. it gave me some thought about what the story of the birth of Christ really is about. Christmas isn't just a fun holiday. it's something to really think about.

    ps merry Christmas brandon heath!

  39. Shawn Long

    Anyone else hear this for the first time and think he went totally catholic at the end there?..

  40. Thang Zai

    "Jesus there among humanity" makes me so overwhelmed that He who could extinct the whole humanity from the face of Earth loves us. And "Just a million angels crowding in to see" makes me realize how great our God is.

  41. Nickymouse

    Brandon, if you ever see this comment, the first time I heard this song, it made me cry. Is one of the most beautiful songs I´ve ever heard. That´s the meaning of Christmas right there!

    Candice Christian

    Exactly .. me also. . Almost every time I hear this beautiful song. .. Jesus I love you ❤🎶👑❤

  42. Nicole Proteimus

  45. Ruben Ruitenbeek


  46. Lucy Gaid

    God gave you a gift to write songs that reveal Him to others. It's amazing beyond description. Please dont let anyone stop you from writing songs about Christ.

  47. dearValerie

    Beautiful song!
    You should focus on Mary more, SHE IS our Mother to, chosen since eternity. <3
    And don't be afraid to love her, you can't love her more than Jesus already do.

  52. Derp Hole

    chokes me up everytime

  53. Edna obenschain

    This song has made my heart bigger then I thought possible to grow but as time goes on I know God is with me or I couldn't make it. Times are rough, family cruel and love limited and as mine runith over I have so much to give and share.May I use it as God has expected I myself and every other Human being

  54. Edna obenschain

    I believe this story needed to told this way or history would be different. If anything I believe it humbled us and for all of this it gives us faith in our holy spirit jesus christ. When I heard this song it made me feel I am a bud that needs nurturing and in time I will be full bloom and I pray for all of you that read this for we a lll take time as the sun lays upon us and makes us shine and we are golden for we are Gods children.

  55. Em Richardson

    The last couple days I had been struggling with things I felt like I needed to handle on my own. This song made me stop, gave me a moment of peace and clarity that I needed to let go and pray about what was happening. I'm not an emotional basket case anymore today and will probably be humming this hauntingly pretty song for weeks :)

  56. ska doosh

    "There were a million Angels crowding around."

    Random Angel: *points at Jesus* AYE THAT'S MY BRO HEY JESUS!

    Could Bee


  57. Mackenzie Braden

    My favorite part of this song is the lyric "Just a King, A Million Angels Crowding in to see, Jesus among humanity". This part is just so awe inspiring, the Angels in Heaven knew of Jesus, and now God's own Son is down amongst the humans, God's creation, as a baby. That just is such an awesome picture, to think that the Angels throughout Heaven are all trying to get a glimpse at Jesus as a baby, because they knew this is God's Son.


    Mackenzie Braden same when I listened to that part for the first time it gave me chills of happiness

    Lisa Guess


    Moe Moe

    Its such an amazingly beautiful picture

    Karen Stewart

    Me too. I immediately got a picture of them all tiptoeing, trying get a glimpse of this most spectacular miracle - even for these Heavenly beings who had already seen it all. I love it. Makes Christmas even more special.

    Belle Louis

    It is so funny you said this. I have heard this song many times, but it just struck me again, this time, how awe inspiring that image is.

  58. MrIridium192

    Such an AWESOME song! My heart just want to worship my Lord Jesus!!!

  59. Lindsey Staton

    This song reminds me of how we make room in our lives for everything else, except God. Such a beautiful song about the birth of our Savior.

  60. HristosIisusEdomnul

  69. Jesus Is So Lovely

    The lovely Lord Jesus: "I have endured your sorrows, experienced your struggles, encountered your temptations. I know your tears; I also have wept. The griefs that lie too deep to be breathed into any human ear, I know. Think not that you are desolate and forsaken. Though your pain touch no responsive chord in any heart on earth, look unto Me, and live. "The mountains shall depart, and the hills be removed; but My kindness shall not depart from thee, neither shall the covenant of My peace be removed, saith the Lord that hath mercy on thee." Isa. 54:10." Desire of Ages, chapt. The Divine Shepard. -Ellen White.

  75. Jimmy Ruquet

    The traditional story we have heard since childhood about the mean spirited innkeeper is wrong. We did not get taught the scriptures from their original Greek context. The word for inn in Luke 2:7 is "kataluma" meaning a guest chamber. Joseph and Mary were traveling for the census taking. They arrived at a relative's home to stay. But others were also traveling and were already at the home and there was no more rooms. It wasn't an evil Bethlehem Motel 6 manager that was denying them a room.

  76. Donna Lenz

    Too many Christian songs have derogatory comments. I saw none of that at all here, even two years after the video was uploaded. There's hope yet.
    Merry Christmas, all!

    Julie Donn aka Jesa Jones

    Whoops, meant to post this to Brandon Heath's "Just a Girl", but my playlist had switched in the background. I haven't looked at the comments for this song yet.
