Lyrics:

VERSE 1

When I think upon Christmas

Words can’t express

How our Father in heaven

Has sent us His best

To be born in a manger

The king in the hay

And creation will worship His Name


CHORUS

For the joy of the world

He was born

Bringing peace to us all

Through the gift of the Son

Now the darkest of ages are done

For the Saviour of heaven has come


VERSE 2

When I think upon Jesus

The King of all days

I can’t help but respond

With an offering of praise

Like the wise men and shepherds

I’ll follow Your light

Like the angels I’ll lift Your Name high


CHORUS 2

For the joy of the world

You were born

Bringing peace to us all

For the gift of Your love

Now the darkest of ages are done

For the Saviour of heaven has come


VERSE 3

Now I look back in reverence

To that holy night

For the God of the heavens

Had us on His mind

Let us sing of His glory

Rejoice in His Name

Oh Emmanuel with us always

And forever His kingdom will reign
