"Zion's Daughter" is a 1982 Christmas single by German band Boney M., the second single to be released off their Christmas Album, released in November 1981. It was a re-worked up-tempo version of Georg Friedrich Händel's Tochter Zion with English lyrics by Fred Jay. The tune of the German advent carol is well-known in England as part of Henry Wood's Fantasia on British Sea Songs performed every year at the BBC's Last Night of the Proms concert.

The single featured a manipulated photo from 1978 with new male singer Reggie Tsiboe inserted in place of original member Bobby Farrell. The single failed to chart anywhere. In Scandinavia, "Feliz Navidad" was chosen as the 1982 Christmas single, and in Spain Ariola opted for "Jingle Bells".
