Good tidings of great joy.@Luke 2:10

William E. Marks, 1911 (🔊 pdf nwc).

Glad hearts are singing,
For Christmas is bringing us joy, joy, joy!
Jesus from Heaven
To mortals is given, oh, joy, joy, joy!
Give unto Him adoration,
Mortals, your best songs employ;
Perfect salvation
He offers each nation, oh, joy, joy, joy!

Refrain

Joy, joy, joy! Joy, joy, joy!
Angels are singing
And Christmas is bringing us joy, joy, joy!
Joy, joy, joy! Joy, joy, joy!
Merry bells ringing,
And Christmas is bringing us joy, joy, joy!

Hail to the Stranger
Of Bethlehem’s manger, oh, joy, joy, joy!
Great is God’s favor
To send us a Savior, oh, joy, joy, joy!
With us He still is remaining,
Nothing His love can destroy;
King He is reigning,
And we are obtaining great joy, joy, joy!

Refrain

Angels are singing,
And Christmas is bringing us joy, joy, joy!
In the glad measure
We join with great pleasure, oh, joy, joy, joy!
Sing of the joys of salvation,
Cheer those whom troubles annoy;
Send to each nation
The great proclamation of joy, joy, joy!
