Joy is now in ev­ery place,
Christmas light­ens ev­ery face;
Now be with us, in Your grace,
Bless us, ho­ly Je­sus.

May the star that shone that night,
Making Your poor sta­ble bright,
Fill our hearts with love and light;
Hear us, ho­ly Je­sus.

Through the New Year let it stay,
Leading us up­on Your way,
Making Christ­mas ev­ery day,
Bless us, ho­ly Je­sus.

Now and ev­er may we find
Your good news to fill our minds:
Peace and love to hu­man­kind,
Hear us, ho­ly Je­sus.
