1. Awake and join the cheerful choir
Upon this joyful morn
And glad Hosannas loudly sing
For joy a Saviour's born.

2. The shining host in bright array
Descend from heaven to earth;
And all the gentle heart and voice
Proclaim a Saviour's birth.

3. Let all the choirs on earth below
Their voices loudly raise;
And sweetly join the cheerful band
Of angels in the skies.

4. But let us join the cheerful song
With joy and pious mirth,
And all, with grateful heart and voice,
Proclaim the Saviour's birth.

Sheet Music from Pickard-Cambridge
