Weekly Words To Live By #79 . . .


This is one of my favorite Christmas folk songs written by John Jacob Niles in 1933.
I hope you take the time to listen and ponder the wonder of Christ's birth.

I Wonder As I Wander 

I wonder as I wander out under the sky
How Jesus the Saviour did come for to die
For poor on'ry people like you and like I
I wonder as I wander out under the sky

When Mary birthed Jesus 'twas in a cow's stall
With wise men and farmer and shepherds and all
But high from God's heaven, a star's light did fall
And the promise of ages it then did recall

 If Jesus had wanted for any wee thing
A star in the sky or a bird on the wing
Or all of God's angels in heaven to sing
He surely could have it 'cause he was the King

I wonder as I wander out under the sky
How Jesus the Saviour did come for to die
For poor on'ry people like you and like I
I wonder as I wander out under the sky
