Joyful Tidings Of A Savior

Full Text

1 Joyful tidings of a Savior
Came this day
To the world, as in darkness and sin it lay;
Angel voices sang soft and clear
Through the midnight air.
The bells send forth their peaceful strain,
And tell that joyful news again,
Far over the snow.

Refrain:
Sweetly sing, then, with the angels,
Soft and clear;
Let your voices be borne on the chill night air;
Carol softly, carol sweetly,
Peace proclaim
Through the birth of a Savior in Bethlehem.

2 Holy tributes to the manger
Let us bring;
Let us welcome the Savior, our Lord and king;
While the earth with pure snow is clad
Let pure hearts be glad.
And bells ring out their joyful peal,
And angel voices gently steal
Far through the still night. [Refrain]

3 Humbly sheltered in a stable
Jesus lay;
May He likewise be found in our hearts this day;
Holy Savior, do Thou be near,
Bring Thou holy cheer;
And we will sing in glad accord
With joyful bells and angels’ word,
Both now and for aye. [Refrain]
