Christmas Hymn ~ Our Day of Joy



Our day of joy is here again,
With love and peace and song;
Come, let us join th’angelic strain
With voices clear and strong.

Glory to our God, we sing,
Glory to our Lord and king;
Peace, goodwill with all abide
This holy Christmas tide.

When darkness lay upon this earth,
A glorious light did shine,
God sent a Gift of priceless worth
And showed His love divine.
~ Andrew Skoog 1892 ~
