A child is born
We've suddenly stepped through
A thousand doors
A child is born
Her chin is like mine
But her eyes are yours

How perfectly formed are her fingers
So far reach, so much to know
What words will be formed by her fingers
We'll hold her close, then let her go

How sweet to find
A part of ourselves
We knew nothing of
A child is born
A child that is born of our love

Written by:

Alan Bergman, Marilyn Bergman, and Dave Grusin
