I wondered if somebody could post the lyrics to "It's a Miracle," a sweet little song by Peter Krug that was recorded by Faith Petric on her Faith's Favorites CD. It appeared in Volume 33, #3, of Sing Out! Magazine - that's from sometime in the 1980s, and I don't have the magazines from that decade.
I think I have the chorus right:
It's a miracle that the breezes blow,
It's a miracle that the rivers flow forever to the sea;
It's a miracle that the rain comes down
It's a miracle that the world turns round
But the finest miracle I ever have found
Is the miracle of you and me.

It was also in issue 182 of "Broadside: The Topical Song Magazine" (which is indexed at SingOut.org). [Funny—the song doesn't strike me as "topical."]
Sally Rogers sang it on her album "Peace by Peace" (1991). You can hear a sample at her website, from which I transcribed this:
Early in the mornin' when I open my eyes,
And I see the dawn spread across the skies,
Just no way I can ever deny
That it's a miracle. (It's a miracle.)
Outside my window birds are singin'.
Tree to tree I see them wingin',
And ev'ry new moment is sure to be bringin'
It's a miracle that the flowers grow.
It's a miracle....
[You can also purchase and download the song there for $0.99.]
There are several other songs with the same title.
