We will carol joyfully
On this holy festal day;
To our risen Lord and king
Grateful homage we will bring.

Carol, carol, carol, carol,
To our risen Lord and king.

We will carol joyfully,
As with sweet accord we bring
Praise from every heart and voice
To our risen Lord and king.

While our love and thanks we give
To our risen Lord and king,
Him who died that we might live.

We will carol joyfully,
And to Him our offerings bring—
Grateful hearts, with love and praise,
To our risen Lord and king.
