Joy Has Dawned



Verse 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



Verse 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

Vulnerable and helpless



Verse 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

By His blood He'll win us



Verse 4

Son of Adam Son of heaven

Given as a ransom

Reconciling God and man

Christ our mighty Champion

What a Savior what a Friend

What a glorious mystery

Once a babe in Bethlehem

Now the Lord of history
