1 We will carol joyfully
On this holy festal day;
To our risen Lord and King
Grateful homage we will bring.

Carol, carol, carol, carol,
To our risen Lord and King.

2 We will carol joyfully,
As with sweet accord we bring
Praise from ev’ry heart and voice
To our risen Lord and King. [Refrain]

3 We will carol joyfully,
While our love and thanks we give
To our risen Lord and King,
Him who died that we might live. [Refrain]

4 We will carol joyfully,
And to Him our off’rings bring—
Grateful hearts, with love and praise,
To our risen Lord and King. [Refrain]

In some hymnals, the editors noted that a hymn's author is unknown to them, and so this artificial "person" entry is used to reflect that fact. Obviously, the hymns attributed to "Author Unknown" "Unknown" or "Anonymous" could have been written by many people over a span of many centuries. Go to person page >
