• Chris Tomlin - Hymn Of Joy Lyrics

    From the album Adore: Christmas Songs of Worship

    Joyful, joyful, we adore Thee
    God of glory, Lord of love
    Hearts unfold like flowers before Thee
    Opening to the sun above
    Melt the clouds of sin and sadness
    Drive the dark of doubt away
    Giver of immortal gladness
    Fill us with the light of day

    Rejoice, rejoice
    Emmanuel
    Your love has come
    Here to dwell

    All thy works with joy surround Thee
    Earth and heaven reflect Thy rays
    Stars and angels sing around Thee
    Center of unbroken praise
    Field and forest
    Vale and mountain
    Flowery meadow
    Flashing sea
    Singing bird and flowing fountain
    Call us to rejoice in Thee

    Mortals, join the happy chorus
    Which the morning stars began
    Father, love is reigning o'er us
    Brother, love binds man to man
    Ever singing, march we onward
    Victors in the midst of strife
    Joyful music leads us sunward
    In the triumph song of life
