Amidst life’s challenges, we need to be pointed back to the source of joy.

The song ‘Wonder’, by Hillsong United is looping in my Spotify.

I’m grateful that through this song, I’ve been lifted from the deep, intense, (suffering?), melancholic love for God. And reminded of the kind of joy from being that wide-eyed, in-awe-of-God gal—who sees things through a more hopeful and happier lens.

Enjoy this song. Let me know in the comments below if you clap your hands and tap your feet along. 😉


Lyrics

Words and Music by Joel Houston & Matt Crocker

VERSE 1
Have you ever seen the wonder
In the glimmer of first sight
As the eyes begin to open
And the blindness meets the light
If you have so say

CHORUS
I see the world in light
I see the world in wonder
I see the world in life
Bursting in living colour
I see the world Your way
And I’m walking in the light

VERSE 2
Have you ever seen the wonder
In the air of second life
Having come out of the waters
With the old one left behind
If you have so say

CHORUS
I see the world in light
I see the world in wonder
I see the world in life
Bursting in living colour
I see the world Your way
And I’m walking in the light

POST-CHORUS
I see the world in grace
I see the world in gospel
I see the world Your way
And I’m walking in the light
I’m walking in the wonder
You’re the wonder in the wild
Turning wilderness to wonder

If You have so say
I see the world in love
I see the world in freedom
I see the Jesus way
You’re the wonder in the wild

BRIDGE
I see the world Your way
And I’m not afraid to follow
I see the world Your way
And I’m not ashamed to say so
I see the Jesus way
And I’m walking in the light
