Joy Fills Our Inmost Hearts Today!
Alternate Title: Emmanuel, God With Us
Words: William Chatterton Dix, in Church Times, circa 1865.
1. Joy fills our inmost hearts today!
The Royal Child is born:
And Angel hosts in glad array
His advent keep this morn.
The Holy One is Mary's Son,
God comes on earth to dwell,
With joy proclaim His glorious Name,
4. Angels are thronging round Thy bed,
Thine infant grace to see;
The stars are paling o'er Thy head,
The Day-spring dawns with Thee. Refrain
5. Thou Light of uncreated Light,
Enlighten us, sweet Child;6
That we may keep Thy birthday bright,
With service undefiled. Refrain
Rejoice, rejoice! Th’ incarnate Word
2. Or: And feel Return
3. Or: No joy was Return
4. Or: When, folded Return
5. Or: We see Thee, Return
Thou Light of uncreated Light,
Shine on us, holy Child; Return
