Zion's Daughter (Tochter Zion)







See also the German Original: Tochter Zion, freue dich

Refrain:
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 awhile
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 (Refrain)

That's the way it happened many years ago,
with the sky above now shining in a wondrous glow
Now the world is waiting, People want to hear
what in Bethlehem had happened, that all will say you're near (Refrain)

Setting of Zechariah 9:9

See also the German Original: Tochter Zion, freue dich

Text: Friedrich Heinrich Ranke (1826)
Tune: Georg Friedrich Handel (1747)
