Lucinda Williams — Blessed lyrics

We were blessed by the minister
Who practiced what he preached.

We were blessed by the poor man who said
'Heaven s within reach.

We were blessed by the girls selling roses
Who showed us how to live.

We were blessed by the neglected child
Who knew how to forgive.

We were blessed by the battered woman
Who didn't seek revenge.

We were blessed by the warrior
Who didn't need to win.

We were blessed by the blind man
Who could see for miles and miles.

We were blessed by the fighter
Who didn't fight for the prize.

We were blessed by the mother
Who gave up the child.
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/lucinda-williams-blessed-lyrics.html ]
We were blessed by the soldier
Who gave up his life.

We were blessed by the teacher
Who didn't have a degree.

We were blessed by the prisoner
Who knew how to be free.

We were blessed.
Yeah, we were blessed.

We were blessed by the mystic
Who turned water into wine.

We were blessed by the watch maker
Who gave up his time.

We were blessed by the wounded man
Who fell on pain... by the wayfaring stranger
Who knew our names.

We were blessed by the homeless man
Who showed up so at home.

We were blessed by the hungry man
Who filled us with love... by the innocent baby
Who taught us the truth.

We were blessed by the forelorn, forsaken and abused.

We were blessed.
Yeah, we were blessed.
Mmm, we were blessed.
Yeah, we were blessed.
We were blessed.
