Calypso Carol - Jesmond Parish Church, Newcastle - Kids Bible Songs

Our crazy puppet friends sing 'Calypso Carol'.


Verse 1:

See him lying on a bed of straw:

a draughty stable with an open door;

Mary cradling the babe she bore

the prince of glory is his name.



O now carry me to Bethlehem

to see the Lord of love again:

just as poor as was the stable then,

the prince of glory when he came.


Verse 2: 

Star of silver, sweep across the skies,

show where Jesus in the manger lies;

shepherds, swiftly from your stupor rise

to see the saviour of the world!


Verse 3:

Angels, sing again the song you sang,

sing the glory of God's gracious plan;

Sing that Bethl'em's little baby can

be the saviour of us all.


Verse 4:

Mine are riches, from your poverty,

from your innocence, eternity;

mine, forgiveness by your death for me,

child of sorrow for my joy.
