Oh, what a wonder you are,
in your eyes I see the bright morning star,
in those arms the strength of the hills
in your hands the depths of the earth.
You hold the world, that's what I see;
baby Jesus, take hold of me.

Wonder Word of the Lord,
and did they say I'd carry the glory of God?
For your eyes have seen more years than mine;
all was planned way before time.
Gracious love, that's what I see,
baby Jesus, pour your grace on me.

And your glory shines into the night
and your kingdom grows at the spread of your light;
and you shall reign to the end of all life.
Baby Jesus, watch over me.


Laid in a cradle of wood,
at your end your cross will stand for our good.
Who is this who sees it no loss,
who lays aside the crown for the cross?
Lord of all, that's what I see,
baby Jesus, watch over me.

And your glory shines into the night
and your kingdom grows at the spread of your light;
and you shall reign to the end of all life.
Baby Jesus, watch over me.


Come and hear the story of the coming of the glory,
for his kingdom and his glory will never end!
Lord of all, that's what I see,
baby Jesus, watch over me.
