Battle (Against the Virus) Hymn
1. We are St Helen’s choristers we love to meet and sing,
We’ve spent the last twelve months at home so busy practising,
We work on new songs every week, then film ourselves online,
And goodness knows with full time jobs just how we’ve found the time!
Glory glory hallelujah! (x3)
If soon we all can sing in church then we will all be fine!
2. The Junior Choir are growing up, they’re all as tall as trees,
Their feet have all grown really big, their hair is at their knees!
It won’t be long until the eldest tinies join our throng
They’ll learn to sing, have lots of fun and always get along.
and if you’d like to be a part, then come to join their song.
3. The nasty virus stayed a while, in lockdown we have been,
We couldn’t meet to sing each week, we’ve had to watch a screen!
But it’s all right – we don’t give up – it’s not all doom and gloom,
Thank goodness we have carried on by moving on to Zoom!
but we can’t wait to get back into church and Rob’s Games’ Room.
4. We feel as if the government has put us in a fix –
They say we have to sing spaced out! – and only up to six!
It doesn’t make a lot of sense when football crowds can sing
So come on Boris, have a heart, and let our anthems ring!
Let’s hope next year we’re back in church and proper concert-ing!
Lyrics by Lily and Anthony Mason and Helen Duffus
