Joyous praises

Representative Text

1 Hark! 'tis Christmas Day,
Haste with us away;
Jesus is born, Jesus is born,
Born on earth to reign.
Raise a happy song,
Sing it loud and long,
Join with the shepherds
Worshiping on the plain.
Come then all ye people ev'rywhere,
Lift your grateful hearts in praise and pray'r.

Refrain:
Raise a happy song,
Sing it loud and long,
Jesus is King,
He evermore shall reign.
Raise a happy song,
Sing it loud and long,
Praise Him ye people,
Jesus is our King.

2 See the wondrous Star;
Wise men from afar,
Came from the East, Came from the East,
Worshiping the King.
In their hands they brought
Gifts for Him they sought,
Shall we not with them
Grateful off'rings bring?
Come then children all from far and near,
Jesus Christ the Royal Babe is here. [Refrain]
