1 Joy! joy! joy! Joy! joy! joy!
Sing to the Saviour, shout for joy,
Anthems of grateful praise employ;
Join in the glad triumphant hymn,
The song of the saints and the seraphim.

Worthy! worthy!
Worthy! worthy!
Worthy the Lamb that once was slain!
Worthy is Christ forever to reign!
Worthy is Christ forever to reign!

2 Joy! joy! joy! Joy! joy! joy!
Sing to the great Redeemer's name,
Tell of his love, His grace proclaim;
Publish the deeds that Christ has done,
And echo the triumphs which he has won. [Refrain]

3 Joy! joy! joy! Joy! joy! joy!
Loud and more loud the strains resound,
Spreading the notes of praise around,
Now let the chorus swell and rise,
And blend with the music above the skies. [Refrain]
