Give ya the chords first - tab comes after

Intro
Db   Ab  Bbm   Ab   Gb

Verse 1
	Db      Ab  Bbm   Ab   Gb (Same chords over & over)
	Doctors have come from distant cities
	just to see me stand over my bed
	disbelieving what they're seeing

Chorus:
	they say I must be one of the wonders
             of God's own creation
	and as far as they can see they can offer
             no explanation

Verse 2 : same pattern of chords
           newspapers ask intimate questions
           want confessions they reach into my head
           to steal the glory of my story

Chorus

Bridge:
	Ebm    Db   Bbm   Gb
	I believe
	Ebm    Db   Bbm   Gb
	Fate smiled and destiny

	Bbm			   Gb
        laughed as she came to my cradle
	"know this child will be able"
	laughed as my body she lifted
	"know this child will be gifted
	Bbm                     Gb        Db   Ab    Bbm
	with love, with patience and with faith,
	Ab	   	Gb
	she'll make her way"

verse 3 (just like verses 1 & 2)

           people see me I'm a challenge to your balance,
	   I'm over your heads how I confound you and astound you
           to know I must be one the wonders of...(Chorus)

bridge (just like the 1st one)

          I believe fate smiled & destiny
          laughed as she came to my cradle
          "know this child will be able"
          laughed as she came to my mother
          "know this child will not suffer"
          laughed as my body she lifted
          "know this child will be gifted
          with love, with patience and with faith
          she'll make her way...she'll make her way
