1 Joy has dawned upon the world,
Promised from creation
God's salvation now unfurled,
Hope for ev'ry nation.
Not with fanfares from above,
Not with scenes of glory,
But a humble gift of love
Jesus born of Mary.

2 Sounds of wonder fill the sky
With the songs of angels
As the mighty Prince of life
Shelters in a stable.
Hands that set each star in place,
Shaped the earth in darkness,
Cling now to a mother's breast,
Vuln'rable and helpless.

3 Shepherds bow before the Lamb,
Gazing at the glory;
Gifts of men from distant lands
Prophesy the story.
Gold a king is born today,
Incense- God is with us,
Myrrh- His death will make a way,
And by His blood He'll win us.

4 Son of Adam, Son of heav'n,
Given as a ransom;
Reconciling God and man,
Christ, our mighty champion!
What a Savior! What a Friend!
What a glorious myst'ry!
Once a babe in Bethlehem,
Now the Lord of hist'ry.
