Here's what I've worked out in terms of the chords. I haven't worked on the
lead guitar stuff however.

First of all, you need to capo the 1st fret on your guitar.
The chords I have given are relative to the capo.


[Intro]
C    G    Am    G    F  (x2)

[Verse 1]
C      G       Am        G       F
  Doctors have come from distant cities
               C     G       Am
just to see me stand over my bed
G         F
disbelieving what they're seeing

[Chorus]
         C         G          Am
they say I must be one of the wonders
   G         F
of God's own creation
       C           G                Am
and as far as they can see they can offer
G     F
no explanation

[Verse 2]
(same pattern of chords as verse 1)
(C G Am G F)

newspapers ask intimate questions
want confessions they reach into my head
to steal the glory of my story

[Chorus]
         C         G          Am
they say I must be one of the wonders
   G         F
of God's own creation
       C           G                Am
and as far as they can see they can offer
G     F
no explanation

[Bridge]
Dm   C  Am    F
        I believe
Dm    C         Am    F
fate smiled and destiny
Am                        F
laughed as she came to my cradle
Am                       F
"know this child will be able"
Am                     F
laughed as my body she lifted
Am                       F
"know this child will be gifted
Am              F                 C      G   Am
with love, with patience and with faith,
G              F
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]
         C         G          Am
they say I must be one of the wonders
   G         F
of God's own creation
       C           G                Am
and as far as they can see they can offer
G     F
no explanation

[Bridge]
Dm   C  Am    F
        I believe
Dm    C         Am    F
fate smiled and destiny
Am                        F
laughed as she came to my cradle
Am                       F
"know this child will be able"
Am                     F
laughed as my body she lifted
Am                       F
"know this child will be gifted
Am              F                 C      G   Am
with love, with patience and with faith,
G              F
she'll make her way"

Chords seem quite accurate. It is however difficult to sing this song in C major for a high baritone/tenor--much better when transposed into G major (G D Em D C progression)--also very easy to play.

I agree that G major is easier for many of us to sing. Use the "transpose 3 steps down" function on this page, pop the capo on the 4th fret, and off you go!
