Joy is the song of the morning;
Sweet with the fragrance of flowers;
Streameth the dawn-light of gladness
Down on this fair land of ours.
Joy! joy! Set the echoes ringing;
Joy! joy! Happy hearts are singing,
Joy! for He lives again no more to die!
Joy for the Risen One reigning on high!
Joy angels chant in His heaven,
Laying their crowns at His feet;
Blessing and honor, and glory they repeat.
Be to our king,
Joy, with our heart’s love outpouring,
Upward we look to the skies,
Praying that Jesus, our Savior,
Now in our souls may arise.
