1. Christmas day joyous, feast of all peoples
Heaven and earth resound with glad praise.
Angels descending sing forth His glory
Bringing us faith, hope, love, all our days—
Bringing us faith, hope, love, all our days.

2. Bethlehem’s star with radiance beaming
Fills human hearts with heavenly mirth,
God’s loving message brings new assurance
So let the world proclaim Jesus’ birth—
So let the world proclaim Jesus’ birth.

3. In adoration widows and orphans,
Whose hearts are burdened, turn unto Heav’n,
In faith and hope and love they can pray now
Since Jesus Savior is to them giv’n—
Since Jesus Savior is to them giv’n.

4. Joy we behold on earth and in Heaven
Wonderful Yuletide, blessings from Him,
Joy everlasting gladden all hearts now
Bring to the world peace, goodwill to men—
Bring to the world peace, goodwill to men.
