Joy to the world!
Our Christmas gift is here.
A baby wrapped in swaddling clothes
Was given without a tear.

The baby, just an infant,
Has lighted up a star
Which brought the wandering shepherds
To worship from afar.

Praise the Lord!
The star has brought three kings
To praise this baby, Jesus,
Who will grow to do His thing.

Now we know life isn't easy
For a baby born without.
But material wealth didn't stop this child
From preaching "Cut it out!"

Stop the warring and pretending.
Stop judging one and all.
The Lord loves and gave his Son
So we can all stand tall.

God loves and loves and loves us
No matter what we do.
Just trust it all to Jesus.
It's His Christmas gift to you.
