Christmas Carols – Zion’s daughter

For at least two years my favourite carol has been zion’s daughter by Boney M, it’s a revved up version of Handel’s tocher zion. I love the reverence and joy in the song and the description of Mary’s joy as well the redemption of mankind

“Zion’s Daughter”
Zion’s daughter, now your heart is full of joy
In a cradle in the manger lies the Holy Boy

Zion’s daughter, with your sweet angelic smile
Holding in your arms the Christ Child, resting for a while

Now the world is waiting, People want to hear
what in Bethlehem had happened, that have brought the Saviour near
Now high hope starts rising for another day
With eternal love and justice finally on the way

Zion’s daughter, now your heart is full of joy
In a cradle in the manger lies the Holy Boy

Zion’s daughter, with your sweet angelic smile
Holding in your arms the Christ Child, resting for a while

Zion’s daughter, now your heart is full of joy
In a cradle in the manger lies the Holy Boy

Zion’s daughter, with your sweet angelic smile
Holding in your arms the Christ Child, resting for a while

That’s the way it happened many years ago,
with the sky above the shining in a wonderous stroll

Now the world is waiting, People want to hear
what in Bethlehem had happened, that all will say you’re near

Zion’s daughter, now your heart is full of joy
In a cradle in the manger lies the Holy Boy

Zion’s daughter, with your sweet angelic smile
Holding in your arms the Christ Child, resting for a while
Zion’s daughter…

Boney M’s Christmas carols are a big part of Christmas here in Nigeria, I just realised that all the songs I featured on the Boney M’s Christmas album. I’ll definitely do a none Boney M song next.
