Welcome!

Thank you so very much for your consideration of Debra Lyn’s

“The Wexford Carol (Tom Billy’s Jig)”
for American Roots Performance

and

“One Voice”
for American Roots Song

In these challenging times, we have all had to change and adapt to our “new normal.” Due to this, all of the outside musicians on “One Voice” were recorded remotely through Jeff’s Virtual Studio Networks (VSN). This gave everyone an opportunity to participate in a “live” recording session from the safety of their own home studios.

 

  • For a quick listen, we invite you to view the videos below. Full versions of each song are also included in the music player.
  • Please complete the form at the bottom of the page to let Jeff Silverman know about your submissions this year!

“Debra Lyn has set the bar for contemporary Celtic music. Phenomenal production values, clever arrangements and melodic hooks (signature of her song craft) support Debra’s bell-like voice. One Voice presents a positive message of unity for our troubled times.

The Wexford Carol, Debra Lyn’s contribution to the holiday songbook, is a modern classic. It’s a gorgeous carol that stands out in the Christmas storm of fluff. Again, a stellar arrangement and production values captivate interest and the payoff of Celtic fans. She tags it with the sprightly Tom Billy’s Jig!”

Lyrics

The Wexford Carol (Tom Billy’s Jig)

(Traditional Irish Christmas Carol & Traditional Irish Jig)

Verse 1:
Good people all, this Christmas time,
Consider well and bear in mind
What our good God for us has done
In sending his beloved son
With Mary holy we should pray,
To God with love this Christmas Day

Verse 2:
In Bethlehem upon that morn,
There was a blessed Messiah born
The night before that happy tide
The noble Virgin and her guide
Were long time seeking up and down
To find a lodging in the town
But mark how all things come to pass
From every door repelled, alas
As was foretold, their refuge all
Was but a humble ox’s stall

Verse 3:
Near Bethlehem did shepherds keep
Their flocks of lambs and feeding sheep
To whom God’s angels did appear
Which put the shepherds in great fear
Prepare and go, the angels said
To Bethlehem, be not afraid
For there you’ll find, this happy morn
A princely babe, sweet Jesus, born

Verse 4:
With thankful heart and joyful mind
The shepherds went the babe to find
And as God’s angel had foretold
They did our Savior Christ behold
Within a manger he was laid
And by his side a virgin maid
Attending on the Lord of Life
Who came on earth to end all strife

Verse 1:
Be a little understanding
Show a little heart
Have some faith that all of us
Are not so far apart
The stars you see shine on me
And my sun warms your face
But my dreams are not enough
To give us all some grace

Chorus:
We all must stop, this hatred and division
Listen with your heart, and your eyes might see
We all have a choice
It’s a question of decision
Truth speaks louder, louder in one voice

Verse 2:
Be fair and forgiving
Try to see the truth
Between what’s real and what’s suspicion
Try to see the proof
Open up your heart to me
And have a little faith
We all share one destiny
To run this human race

Chorus:
We all must stop, this hatred and division
Listen with your heart, and your eyes might see
We all have a choice
It’s a question of decision
Actions speak louder, louder in one voice

Bridge:

The path of most resistance is the path that we most fear
And though we claim our innocence, it’s fear that keeps us here

Chorus:
We all must stop, this hatred and division
Listen with your heart, and your eyes might see
We all have a choice
It’s a question of decision
Truth speaks louder, louder in one voice
Actions speak louder, louder in one voice
Love speaks louder, louder in one voice
Louder, louder
Actions speak louder
Love speaks louder
We all speak louder, louder in one voice
