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 celesta, all joke
'Cause gray hair and babies leave no room for hope
But hoping was something this hopeless old man learned to d

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 sit holding him tight
An improbable infant, a punchline, a promise come true

They laughed 'til they wept, then they laughed at their tears
This miracle baby they'd wanted for years
Would make a Messiah who'd give us impossible joy

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, for no other name would do

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, for no other name would do
