Lyrics

Joy is the song of the morn­ing;
Sweet with the frag­rance of flow­ers;
Streameth the dawn-light of glad­ness
Down on this fair land of ours.

Refrain

Joy! joy! Set the ech­oes ring­ing;
Joy! joy! Hap­py hearts are sing­ing,
Joy! for He lives again no more to die!
Joy for the Ris­en One reign­ing on high!

Joy an­gels chant in His heav­en,
Laying their crowns at His feet;
Blessing and hon­or, and glo­ry
Be to our king,
they re­peat.

Refrain

Joy, with our heart’s love out­pour­ing,
Upward we look to the skies,
Praying that Je­sus, our Sav­ior,
Now in our souls may arise.
