Be ye joyful, earth and sky

Full Text

1 Be ye joyful, earth and sky,
Unto us God’s Son came nigh,

He for our salvation
Left God’s habitation,
Yes, He left God’s habitation.

2 Here the fairest Rose we see,
Blooming forth from Jesse’s tree,
Hallelujah! [Refrain]

3 He, the great incarnate Word,
Jesus Christ doth help afford,
Hallelujah! [Refrain]
