'Across the world we remember that time so long ago, when there were angels singing, shepherds praying, kings all kneeling down to honour a child, a miracle child.' A reflective song with an unusual approach. A good song for junior choir and carol concerts, as there are simple but effective harmonies (optional).
Time goes so fast, time goes so slow.
Is it really two thousand years ago
A baby lay in a stable
Who still can move us so?
A story begins, a story grows,
For hundreds of lifetimes it flows:
Across the world we remember
That time so long ago when there were:
Angels singing, shepherds praying,
Kings all kneeling down to honour Him,
Angels singing, shepherds praying,
Kings all kneeling down to honour a child,
A miracle child.
'Miracle Child' comes from the musical by the same name: 'Miracle Child'
Now It's Time For Christmas
Now It's Time For Christmas by Helen Mitchell - 7 to 11yrs - KS2 (2m 15s)
Theme - Christmas, joy, excitement, birth of Jesus
Content - This deliciously Christmassy ballad that combines the ‘feel’ of a contemporary winter celebration with the recollection of the birth of Jesus thousands of years ago. The first verse focuses upon Christmas decorations, streets full of people doing their Christmas shopping and the sound of carols in the air, but also reminds us to think of that first Christmas in a stable far away. The second verse reverses the thinking, beginning with the events at Bethlehem, then coming back to the present day, with Christmas trees, Christmas cake, and the conclusion that it's a time to give thanks for all God's blessings.
The lovely harmony parts and Christmassy feel make this song particularly suitable for choir use.
This song is also featured in the songbook 'Here Comes Christmas'
