I haven’t heard this song for many years, but I heard it today on the radio and I was reminded of its simple beauty. My friend Jeff asked if I had been tuning into any of the radio stations that play continuous Christmas music this time of year. When I told him that I hadn’t, he texted me the call letters of a couple of the local stations, and I Wonder As I Wander was the song that was being played.
This Christmas carol, written in the 1930’s, has its origins in the mountains of Appalachia, and speaks directly to the reason for the season. I hope you enjoy it, and can truly capture the meaning of the words.
