People Look East – Call and Echo

People Look East is an Advent classic at St. Lydia’s. This year, try this new twist – we’ll use it as a Gathering Song. The congregation will not have hymn sheets, but will copy the Song Leader’s words by echoing. In the middle of each verse, the Song Leader will sing a bit solo before bringing the group back in.

For example, Verse 4 would go…

Song Leader: Stars, keep the watch.
People: Stars, keep the watch.
SL: When night is dim
P: When night is dim
SL: One more light the bowl shall brim,
P: One more light the bowl shall brim,

SL: Shining beyond the frosty weather,
Bright as sun and moon together.

SL: People, look east
P: People, look east
SL: and sing today:
P: and sing today:
SL: Love, the star, is on the way.
P: Love, the star, is on the way.

You can have a listen to the recording to get a better idea what I mean, and to practice singing along.

Enjoy !!
