Lyrics

I wonder as I wander,out under the sky,

how Jesus the Saviour did come for to die

for poor ordinary 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 farmers and shepherds and all,

but high from God's heaven a star's light did fall,

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 for 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 ordinary people like you and like I;

 

I wonder as I wander, out under the sky.
