Music fills the air
The heart is warmed
Everywhere there seems light and hope
The cold and darkness does not reach the heart
Smiles may freeze outside
The sky dark from the storm
Snow flying everywhere
Yet the music continues
Joy to the world!
Joyfully the bells ring
Merry Christmas they all say
Voices ringing out!
Hark the herald angels sing!
Pronouncing the hope of the world
Peace on earth good will to humanity
God’s favor come to Human flesh
We sing of incarnate deity
God in flesh
Human eyes looking upon God’s face
Seeing that God chose the face of the common
The king of the universe in such a humble form
Shepherds watched their flocks by night
The angels sang, and they saw Light and Life
