Lyrics

Look toward Christmas!
Advent is here:
welcome December
changing the year,
whistle up, shepherds!
saddle up, kings!
chorus up, angels,
flexing your wings,

REFRAIN:
sing, sing alleluia! sing, sing alleluia!
sing, sing out the Story
sing about hope and peace!

Set the world singing,
make the world glad!
Now is good reason
not to feel sad,
hear John the Baptist
shout to prepare:
Good News is coming,
earth, be aware.

REFRAIN

Mary and Joseph
soon is the day,
ready the donkey,
start on your way:
you are the chosen,
willing to trust,
joyful your burden
carrying Christ,

REFRAIN

Author / Composer Comments

• Author Shirley Erena Murray, from her book Every Day in Your Spirit (Hope Publishing Co., 1996, No. 19): “As an editor of a collection of New Zealand carols, I found few on the Advent theme – especially simple texts for young singers.”
