Charted: 20
  • 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 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 see, they can offer
    No explanation

    Ooo, I believe, fate smiled
    And destiny laughed as you 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, 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
    God's own creation
    And as far as they see, they can offer
    Me no explanation

    Ooo, 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, she'll make her way
    She'll make her way, she'll make her way Writer/s: NATALIE A MERCHANT
