Joyful, Joyful

Joyful, joyful, we adore Thee, God of glory, Lord of light;
Angels lifting praise before Thee, Sing throughout this holy night.
In a manger lies a Baby- Child of Mary, Son of God.
Voices joined in joyful chorus, Praise Thee for Thy gift of love.

 

All Thy works declare Thy glory; All Creation joins to sing.
Praise resounds as earth rejoices in the birth of Christ, the King.
Shepherds kneel before the Infant. Trumpets sound and anthems raise
As with joy our hearts are lifted, Joined in wonder, love and praise.
 
-Linda Lee Johnson, 1986
