Representative Text

1 "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!

2 "Joy" angels chant in His heaven,
Laying their crowns at His feet;
"Blessing and honor, and glory
Be to our king," they repeat. [Refrain]

3 Joy, with our heart’s love outpouring,
Upward we look to the skies,
Praying that Jesus, our Savior,
Now in our souls may arise. [Refrain]

Lizzie De Armond was a prolific writer of children's hymns, recitations and exercises. When she was twelve years old her first poem was published in the Germantown, Pa. Telegraph, however, it was not until she was a widow with eight children to support that she started writing in earnest. She wrote articles, librettos, nature stories and other works, as well as hymns.
