There are so many wonderful lessons in the story of Joseph. My hope is that this song will help children remember that no matter what happens, the Lord can be by their side. And the more they decide to show Him their faithfulness, the Lord will depend on them to be instruments in His hands, just like Joseph.

Wouldn’t it be great if I was just like Joseph through and through?
Somebody who the Lord could count on, too.
Pharoah asked Joseph to store enough wheat up,
For famine was coming and soon.
His brothers were desperate for something to eat,
So to Egypt they came to get food.
Oh, they didn’t know him although they had sold him,
and when Joseph told them, they gasped.
But Joseph forgave them, not to mention he saved them.
A true happy ending at last.
I want to be somebody who the Lord can count on, too.
I am always excited to hear your songs. So thankful to have a songwriter like you. Hope I could also write a song. Thank you for always inspiring us. I really love Joseph of Egypt. He remains faithful in spite of the hardships that he faced through and through. I pray that I could be like him so faithful, true, and strong.
Shawna we will be singing your song for our Sunday school presentation this coming Easter Day. Thank you for writing the song.
My absolute favorite part is when it says the Lord could count on Joseph even when things went wrong, and then poses the question wouldn't it be great if the Lord could count on us too! What a pivotal message! Thank you for creating content to inspire and bless my family.
