1 O come, let happy voices
Their sweetest notes employ,
O praise the heav’nly Father
In songs of hope and joy.

Refrain:
Lift high the strains of gladness
And banish gloom and sadness
O praise the heav’nly Father
In songs of hope and joy.

2 Behold the loving-kindness
On every side displayed,
And praise the great Creator
Whose hand the world has made. [Refrain]

3 The smallest flow’r or dewdrop
That beautifies the sod,
With grandest sea and mountain
Exalts the name of God. [Refrain]

4 Like gentle rains descending
Our Maker’s blessings fall,
Unite with Nature’s choral
And praise the Lord of all. [Refrain]
