1. Be ye joyful, earth and sky,
Hallelujah!
Unto us Godís Son came nigh,
Hallelujah!
He for our salvation
Left Godís habitation,
Yes, He left Godís habitation.

2. Here the fairest Rose we see,
Hallelujah!
Blooming forth from Jesse's tree,
Hallelujah!
He for our salvation
Left God's habitation,
Yes, He left God's habitation.

3. He, the great incarnate Word,
Hallelujah!
Jesus Christ doth help afford,
Hallelujah!
He for our salvation
Left God's habitation,
Yes, He left God's habitation.
