lifeblood: songs: the wonder song


for christmas my love
gave me a stocking
sewn of sack cloth and
hung on a nail
the simplest gift
warm by the fire
a vessel of a kindness
peace prevails

will my love
fill it with silver
will my love
fill it with gold
or will my love
just fill it with wonder for the
humble prince
born into this world

i walked the path
on down to the river
well into midnight
on a christmas eve
to hear the beasts
and birds of the forest
telling the story
of the star in the east

the brightest star
in one true sky
the simplest gift
on one cold night
well that night
just filled me with wonder for the
humble prince
born into this world

we gather round
the tree in the morning
strung with berries
and popped corn from the field
it gave itself
from over on the mountain
to bring us joy and
hallow the meal

what is this tree
that gathers us together
what is this tree
withstood the storm
what is this joy
that don't leave no wanting
and fills us with wonder
on this christmas morn

well my love
(i don't need)
i don't need silver
(silver)
well my love
(i don't need)
i don't need gold
(gold)
for my love
i'm filled with the wonder for the
humble prince born into this world
for my love
i'm filled with the wonder
filled with the wonder
filled with the wonder
filled with the wonder on this
christmas morn
