1 Our day of joy is here again,
With love and peace and song;
Come, let us join th’angelic strain
With voices clear and strong.
Glory to our God, we sing,
Glory to our Lord and King;
Peace, goodwill with all abide
This holy Christmas tide.
2 When darkness lay upon this earth,
A glorious light did shine;
God sent a Gift of priceless worth
And showed His love divine. [Refrain]
3 Now to the manger let us go
To worship and adore
The tender Babe upon the straw,
Our Savior evermore. [Refrain]
4 How wonderful that God’s own Son
Should so Himself abase!
He thrust the mighty from their throne,
And gave the lowly grace. [Refrain]
