St Andrew's Carol - Come and see

Words: Bronwyn Angela White

Music: Jacques Berthier (Gloria, Gloria - Taize)



Come and see

the star in the sky

the spangle of angels

the spark in our eyes.

Come and see

the table prepared

the wine in new skins

the Seder bread.


What is the news?

How can this be?

Where do you stay?

Come and see!

Who is the Christ?

Where is the baby?

Who can we tell

to come and see?


What are our gifts?

Who's at the feast?

Will you wash my feet?

Will you walk with me?

Come and share

the fishes and loaves

the Kin-dom right here

Come and see!

This carol can be sung as a round or by people on left and right as a response. Alternately, just the abbreviated version below could be sung as a last verse:


Spangle of angels / babe in the manger

spark in our eyes / star in the sky

fishes and loaves / who's at the feast?

Joy to the world! / Come and see!
