Make Me A Miracle
by Jimmie Rodgers Roulette R-4070
(Hoffman-Manning-Markwell) Planetary Music ASCAP

Make me a miracle
Make me a miracle
Make me a miracle my love
I'm only a drop
Make me a fountain
I'm only a hill
Make me a mountain

You can make a slave or a king of me
Make me ninety feet tall
You can make fabulous things of me
Or nothing at all

I'm only a flame
Make me a fire
I'm only a voice
Make me a choir

You can make a tower of strength of me
Just by touching my hand
You can make whatever you want of me
I'm at your command
(make me a miracle, make me a miracle)

I'm only a cup
Make me a chalice
I'm only a hut
Make me a palace

I can be as wild as a bumble bee
Fly with eagles above
I don't care whatever you make of me
Just make me your love
Just make me your love

Make me a miracle
Make me a miracle
Make me a miracle, my love
(mmmmmmmmmmm)
