The Wonders You Perform Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Oh Lord, You know that I'm not one
To bother You with little things
And You and I have never been too close
But we've always been on speakin' terms
I've watched You with doin' things
And tried to understand You more than most
Verse 2
No, I haven't gone to church the way I ought to
But I always thought You knew
In my own way I worshiped You
While even Your own children doubt and fail to understand
The simple way You go about the things You do
Verse 3
I've seen the doubt upon the face of loved ones
As they sadly placed a wreath of flowers on a tiny grave
And wondered why a child is brought into the world
To only live a little while and die, You could have saved
Verse 4
But I believe that in your eyes
This little child was somethin' special
And You wanted it to be with You, no doubt
So with out-stretched arms
You beckoned it so simple that I reckon
They can't understand the way You worked it out
Verse 5
Once I saw a young man growin'
Till he neared the age of knowin'
Then I watched as somethin' happened to his mind
No doctor could correct it, it was just as I suspected
And I marveled at Your way of bein' kind
Verse 6
They tried everything in vain
And I was there when they explained it
To the family, how he slipped into a trance
Guess You looked into the future
Watched him turn his back upon You
Lovin' him so much You couldn't take the chance
Verse 7
It took a lot of love to die, for sinners such as I
And I guess that's why You've never given up on me
You understood when some denied You
And even when they crucified You
Knowin' all these things were meant to be
Verse 8
For the stable's such a simple thing
No wonder there were few who came
To see a king the night that
