Joy To The World--By Sara Kendrick--United States

Joy To The World

J  oyfully the angels did say
O  n this earth peace this day
Y  es, on those His favor rest

T  o  lowly shepherds story told
O  n a journey with their newly foaled

T  o Bethlehem their quest
H  apply were they when the Child saw
E  ntered in Mary's heart without flaw

W ords shepherds spoke of angels
O  n that night heaven's glory shone
R  evealed to them; God's son made known
L  ove released to nations
D elighted Hallelujah, Hallelujah sings
