featuring the Cypress Studio Singers
Albert Einstein said that there are two ways to look at life; 1) nothing is a miracle 2) everything is a miracle. In a gentle bossa nova style, this song leaves little doubt about Nickel’s view on the matter. Listen to the Cypress Studio Singers gorgeous rendition of the music.

LYRICS

Oh the wonder
Consider the wonder of it all

Have you seen the wonder in the eyes of a child?
Do you stop and marvel every once in a while?
Many magic moments that seem too good to be true
There are times I question everything I thought I knew

I have seen the sunrise, one ribbon at a time
And a golden twilight while chapel bells chime
So many magic moments invite us day after day
I am both thankful and amazed

My soul reaches out to infinite Love
My voice cries aloud to the heavens above
“Oh the wonder of it all, Oh the wonder of it all”
With gratitude I say – “Oh the wonder!”

Consider the wonder of it all.

Wonders and mysteries – they play on my mind
Could we appear from nothing? – or from loving design?
On this fragile planet, all alone, we tumble through space
We should be thankful for another day of grace

After the snow flies and Spring is in the air
With a heart full of singing, I will whisper a prayer
The overwhelming beauty can strike me straight to the bone
I lift my praise to God alone

My soul reaches out to infinite Love
My voice cries aloud to the heavens above

My soul reaches out to infinite Love
My voice cries aloud to the heavens above
“Oh the wonder of it all, Oh the wonder of it all”
With gratitude I say – “Oh the wonder of it all”
