Song Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
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
Verse 2
Now the joy of my world is in Zion
Now the joy of my world is in Zion
Verse 3
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
Verse 4
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
Verse 5
Marching, marching, marching, marching to Zion
Marching, marching, marching
Marching, marching, marching, marching to Zion
Marching, beautiful, beautiful Zion
Verse 6
Marching, marching, marching, marching to Zion
Marching, marching, marching
Marching, marching, marching, marching to Zion
Marching, beautiful, beautiful Zion
Verse 7
Marching, marching, marching, marching to Zion
Marching, marching, marching
Marching, marching, marching, marching to Zion
Marching, beautiful, beautiful Zion
Verse 8
Marching, marching, marching, marching to Zion
Marching, marching, marching
Marching, marching, marching, marching to Zion
Marching, beautiful, beautiful Zion
Verse 9
Marching, marching, marching, marching to Zion
Marching, marching, marching
Marching, marching, marching, marching to Zion
Marching, beautiful, beautiful Zion
Verse 10
(Marching), beautiful, beautiful Zion
(Marching), beautiful, beautiful Zion
(Marching), beautiful, beautiful Zion
(Marching), beautiful, beautiful Zion
(Marching), beautiful, beautiful Zion
(Marching), beautiful, beautiful Zion
