Wonder

I have just recently discovered this song and it blows me away...

What do you think??


So much wonder
Carved in your coral seas
So much wonder
Shaded by ancient trees
I consider all that your hands have made
Every newborn’s eyes, every new sunrise
No power can tame your presence
No light can match your radiance

LET ALL CREATION SING IN WONDER
EVERY SEA, EVERY CREATURE, EVERY STAR
YOU OPENED UP MY EYES TO WONDER
WHAT A VISION, WHAT A WONDER YOU ARE

Such a wonder
Ordering time and tide
Such a wonder
Bridging the great divide
I consider all that you had, all you gave
And all that you endured
From this rebel world
What a wondrous cross you chose to bear
What a wonder you would even care

[Repeat Chorus]

LET EVERY ROCK CRY OUT
LET EVERY KNEE BOW DOWN
YOU OPENED UP MY HEART TO WONDER
WHAT LOVE, WHAT A WONDER YOU ARE

No power can tame your presence
No light can match your radiance
Such a wonder...
Such a wonder...

[Repeat Chorus]

LET EVERY ROCK CRY OUT
LET EVERY KNEE BOW DOWN
YOU OPENED UP MY HEART TO WONDER
WHAT LOVE, WHAT A WONDER YOU ARE

  1. hey, I've been leap blogging...I love this song too

    I heard a rumor that it was played at the funeral of the crocodile hunter guy from tv - don't know if that's true but it would have been very powerful indeed if it was.

  2. Michelle - I know!! Wow ...

    Jessie - hey! Glad for your visit :o) That's very moving indeed; I didn't even realise the guy was a Christian - kinda makes the whole thing a bit less painful in a way. And what a powerful witness!!

  3. I love it, too... it ministers...

    I do believe the song was a part of the tribute to Steve Irwin on the anniversary of his death- he was Aussie, of course, and so are the Newsboys. What a beautifully fitting song for him!
