Arise and sing a joyful song (Morning Song)

Lyrics

Published with Permission of the author: Rev. Brian L. Penney

1. Arise and sing a joyful song,
All you who dwell on earth;
Let ev’ry heart and ev’ry tongue
Proclaim the Savior’s birth.

2. Behold the Son was virgin-born,
By God’s mysterious pow’r;
Into this world, by sin destroyed,
He came at life’s dark hour.

3. The Light of life, incarnate Word,
The prophets did record;
Took on Himself the form of man,
That man might be restored.

4. In sacrificial love He came
And for our fallen race;
Upon Himself He took God’s wrath,
In death He took our place.

5. Now with the angels praise the One
Who bore our sins away;
With love, and joy, and gratitude,
Hail Him this Christmas day.
