Oh, How Joyfully

Music by Ron Klusmeier
Words by Brian Wren
Tune Name: PONOKA

Lyrics as Poetry

Oh, how joyfully, Oh, how hopefully,
waits the world on Christmas Eve!
Love comes healing, God revealing
Friends, be joyful and believe!

Oh, how joyfully, Oh, how peacefully,
sleeps the world on Christmas Night!
Sins are covered, grace discovered,
In our darkness shines the light!

Oh, how joyfully, Oh, how thankfully,
wakes the world on Christmas Morn!
God has spoken, death is broken,
Alleluia! Christ is born!
