[Featuring Carlos Santana]

One day you'll understand... Zion

Unsure of what the balance held

I touched my belly overwhelmed

by what I had been chosen to perform

But then an angel came one day

Told me to kneel down and pray

for unto me a man child would be born

Woe this crazy circumstance

I knew his life deserved a chance

but everybody told me to be smart

"Look at your career " they said,

"Lauryn baby use your head."

But instead I chose to use my heart

Now the joy... of my world...

is in Zion! (Zion, Zion!)

Now the joy... of my world...

is in Zion! (Zion, uhh, Zion!)

How beautiful if nothing more

than to wait at Zion's door

I've never been in love like this before

Now let me pray to keep you from

the perils that will surely come

See life for you my Prince has just begun

And I thank you for choosing me

to come through unto life to be

A beautiful reflection of His grace

See I know that a gift so great

is only one God could create

And I'm reminded every time I see your face

that the joy... (JOY) of my world... (WORLD)

is in Zion! (IS IN ZION) I said Zion! (IS IN ZION)

Now the joy... (JOY) of my world... (WORLD)

is in Zion! (IS IN ZION, IS IN ZION)

Now the joy... Zion! (JOY) of my world... (WORLD)

is in Zion! (IS IN ZION, IS IN ZION)

Now the joy... Zion! (JOY) of my world... (WORLD)

is in Zion! (IS IN ZION, IS IN ZION)
