Redeemed Hymn 140 – Joy Fills Our Inmost Heart To-day

“And they shall call his name Emmanuel.” -Matt. 1:23

1 Joy fills our inmost heart to-day

The royal Child is born:

And angel hosts in glad array

His Advent keep this morn.



Rejoice, rejoice! The incarnate Word

Has come on earth to dwell;

No sweeter sound than this is heard


2 Low at the cradle throne we bend,

We wonder and adore;

And feel no bliss can ours transcend,

No joy was sweet before.

3 For us the world must lose its charms

Before the manger shrine,

When, folded in Thy mother’s arms.

We see Thee Babe divine.


4 Thou Light of uncreated Light,

Shine on us, Holy Christ;

That we may keep Thy birthday bright.

With service undefiled.
