GUEST,Quokka Suggested song for a baby blessing? (32) RE: Suggested song for a baby blessing? 22 Mar 09


WONDER Natalie Merchant(from the album 'Tigerlily')
Doctors have come
from distant cities
just to see me
stand over my bed
disbelieving what they're seeing
they say I must be one of the wonders
of god's own creation
and as far as the can see they can offer
no explanation
newspapers ask
intimate questions
what confessions
they reach into my head
to steal the glory
of my story
they say I must be one of the wonders
of god's own creation
and as far as the can see they can offer
no explanation
I believe
fate smiled and destiny
laughed as she came to my cradle
"know this child will be able"
laughed as my body she lifted
"know this child will be gifted
with love, with patience
and with faith
she'll make her way"
people see me
I'm a challenge
to your balance
I'm over your heads
how I confound you
and astound you
to know I must be one of the wonders
of god's own creation
and as far as you can see you can offer me
no explanation
I believe
fate smiled and destiny
laughed as she came to my cradle
"know this child will be able"
laughed as she came to my mother
"know this child will not suffer"
laughed as my body she lifted
"know this child will be gifted
with love, with patience
and with faith
she'll make her way"
