Fearfully and wonderfully made



Thank you Tracye for sharing this song with me and giving permission to post it. This song was written for Tracye's son who also has Autism. Psalm 139 is very special to me. I read this Psalm on the very day that John was diagnosed with Autism back in March 2006. It has always been such a blessing to me in times of struggle.


Wonderfully Made (by JD Cunningham)

I see in his eyes proof that he’s mine
And his smile is the same one she’s given me so many times

And each time he laughs I can’t help but cry
Cause the world’s bound to hurt him no matter how hard I try

And I try to remember though I still can’t conceive
That he belongs to you more than he ever will me

For you created his inmost being
Knit together in his mother's womb
And his frame was never hidden from you in a secret place
From the depths of the earth you saw his body form
And ordained every step of his days
So I praise you for he is fearfully and wonderfully made
And I know full well your works are wonderful

I may never know and surely won’t understand
The path that you chose to take this boy down to become a man

But please make him faithful and God make him brave
And grant me the wisdom to point him back to your ways

And all through the years as his little heart grows
Lord pierce it with love so that some day he’ll know

That you created his inmost being
Knit together in his mother's womb
And his frame was never hidden from you in a secret place
From the depths of the earth you saw his body form
And ordained every step of his days
And he’ll praise you for he is fearfully and wonderfully made
And he’ll know full well your works are wonderful

Lord I praise you for he is fearfully and wonderfully made
And I know full well your works are wonderful

Psalm 139:
13 For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb.
14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. 15 My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, 16 your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.

I found your blog thru nathan and tricia's blog. I absolutely love the words to this song. My boys were born early at 28 weeks and this portion of Scripture were what my husband and I lived on. Moses had Downs Syndrome and this just spoke volumes to us of his Perfection.

Would it be possible to use the words to this song on my blog?
