They Called Him Laughter
by Michael Card

Album: An Invitation to Awe
by Michael Card


A barren land and a barren wife
Made Abraham laugh at his wandering life
A cruel joke it seemed then to call him the father of nations
A heavenly prank, a celestial joke
Cause grey hair and babies leave no room for hope
But hoping is something this hopeless old man learned to do

Chorus:
They called him laughter
For he came after
The father had made an impossible promise come true
The birth of a baby to a hopeless old lady
So they called him laughter
Cause no other name would do

A cry in the darkness and laughter at night
An elderly couple sat holding him tight
An imporbable infant, a punchline, a promise come true
They laughed til they wept then laughted at their tears
This miracle baby they've wanted for years
Would make a messiah who'd give us impossible joy

Chorus(X2)
