Christmas Song — Joy Has Dawned

Joy has dawned upon the world, Promised from creation:
God’s salvation now unfurled, hope for every nation.
Not with fanfares from above, not with scenes of glory,
But a humble gift of love: Jesus born of Mary.

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.

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.

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.
