The Wonder of it All
Let my heart on the wings of the four winds blow
To the shores of the seven seas,
And I’ll still hear His voice
In the wild winds rejoice.
Oh the wonder of it all ~ I know He’s watching me.
I have seen the pagan wonders in lands a-far away
And I’ve heard the sirens calling, “Come you back to Mandalay.”
I have crossed the rugged mountains and sailed the raging sea
But the wonder of it all ~ I know He’s watching me.
Every day, every step of my wandering way
Is in tune with the thundering sound.
From the high waterfall
To the deep canyon’s call
Comes the wonder of it all ~ I know He’s watching me.
There’s a bright silver bell ringing in my heart
Every time that I hear His name.
And the joys that extend
Through the hand of each friend,
That’s the wonder of it all ~ I know He’s watching me.
