I Wonder As I Wander - Lindsey Stirling




The Experience: Come for to die for poor on'ry people like you and like I... Are we worth saving...


Music video: Lindsey Stirling chooses to underline doubt with stark empty visuals. One is black, empty and dying as the sun sets. The other's brilliance only reveals a lifeless frozen wasteland. We can be dying. We can be dead. But still worth saving.

The Meaning of I Wonder As I Wander: Context: Christmas album. Question: are we worth saving? That's deep fare amidst Christmas cheer... but worth asking. In a time full of low self-esteem, depression, and all too often broken relationships, how can we claim to be worth dying for. Lindsey Stirling doesn't shy away from the question - the bleak opening notes the song and the stark empty visuals of the video underline it. Her answer is a simple fact: Jesus came to save us. We are worth saving. And the solemn vibe becomes wonder and marvel instead of doubt.

Ask yourself: Do you know? Are you convinced that you're worth saving?

Album: Warmer In The Winter (2017)

LYRICS:


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

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