To Zion Lyrics

Unsure of what the balance held
I touched my belly overwhelmed
By what I had been chosen to perform
But then an angel came one day
Told me to kneel down and pray
For unto me a man child would be born
Woe this crazy circumstance
I knew his life deserved a chance
But everybody told me to be smart
Look at your career they said
Lauryn, baby use your head
But instead I chose to use my heart

Now the joy of my world is in Zion
Now the joy of my world is in Zion

How beautiful if nothing more
Than to wait at Zion's door
I've never been in love like this before
Now let me pray to keep you from
The perils that will surely come
See life for you my prince has just begun
And I thank you for choosing me
To come through unto life to be
A beautiful reflection of his grace
For I know that a gift so great
Is only one god could create
And I'm reminded every time I see your face

That the joy of my world is in Zion
Now the joy of my world is in Zion
Now the joy of my world is in Zion
Now the joy of my world is in Zion

Marching, marching, marching, marching to Zion

Thoughts & Meanings

It seems that this song refers to Hill's pregnancy with her first child. Apparently there was initial confusion as to who the baby's father was and perhaps that's why Hill suggests that people around her thought it might not be a good idea to keep the pregnancy within these lyrics. The father turned out to be Bob Marley's son, Rohan. The child was named Zion. It is nice how the lyrics in the song can either refer to Zion the child or Zion the home of humanity (Ethiopia) as thought of by the Rastafari movement. I would presume the naming of the child was heavily influenced by Bob Marley who made countless references to Zion within his own music.
