I Wonder as I Wander

Melody - Appalachian carol

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 farmers
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 heav'n for to sing,
He surely could have had it,
'cause he was the King.
