Wonder
by Natalie Merchant


Shortly after Mikey was born, Michel's brother gave us a copy of the lyrics to this song. The lyrics "know this child will be able" and "know this child will be gifted with love, with patience and with faith she'll make her way" truly say something special and speak to us as the parents of a special child. The video for this song features young women with Down syndrome.

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 they can see they can offer
no explanation

Newspapers ask
intimate questions
want 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 they as they see they can offer
no explanation

I believe
fate smiled & 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 & 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"

Lyrics are 1995 Elektra Entertainment Group
