Star Carol
Simon & Garfunkel Lyrics


Long years ago, on a deep winter night.
High in the heavens, a star shone bright.
While in the manger, a wee baby lay.
Sweetly asleep, on a bed of hay.

Jesus our lord, was that baby so small.
Lay down to sleep, in a humble stall.
Then came the star, and it stood over head.
Shedding its light, 'round his little head.
Dear baby Jesus, how tiny thou art.
I'll make a place, for thee in my heart.
And when the stars, in the heavens I see.
Ever and always, I'd think of thee...

Long years ago, on a deep winter night.
High in the heavens, a star shone bright.
While in the manger, a wee baby lay.
Sweetly asleep, on a bed of hay.Jesus our lord, was that baby so small.
Lay down to sleep, in a humble stall.
Then came the star, and it stood over head.
Shedding its light, 'round his little head.Dear baby Jesus, how tiny thou art.
I'll make a place, for thee in my heart.
And when the stars, in the heavens I see.
Ever and always, I'd think of thee..

Simon and Garfunkel have the most calming music.

"The Star Carol", "Some Children See Him" and "O Harken Ye" are on Tennesse Ernie Fords album The Star Carol, a collection of favorites from his childhood. The were written by Alfred Burt and performed as a family tradition by his father's congregation. They were so well recieved that they were soon carried throughout the nation by recordings, radio and television. Not sure of the dates, but Mr. Ford was a Bombadeer in the Pacific Theater during WW2.

This was put on Grant's Department Store's "A Very Merry Christmas" (volume 1), back in '68. It was an in-store only promotional item, produced for them by Columbia (CBS) Records.

This has to be the finest obscure Christmas carol I've ever heard. A gentle peaceful little gem that has become one of my all-time favorite Christmas songs..
