Mary's Boy Child – Oh My Lord by Boney M. was a UK number 1 hit on Saturday, December 9, 1978 spending 4 week(s) at the top of the UK charts. Originally, this was a West Indian song written by Jester Hairston, a Julliard-trained songwriter who would later popularize the spiritual "Amen" during the civil rights movement in the United States. The song tells the story of the birth of Jesus. During the Christmas season of 1978, Boney M. returned the song to the top of the British charts with the melody "Mary's Boy Child/Oh My Lord." It was only at the last minute that Boney M decided to record and release this song. Lead singer Liz Mitchell said the process was hard work, as it involved "singing a track in the studio more than 50 times in one session, including lead, backing vocals, harmonies and all the oohs and aahs."
