Joy!

Standard

 

(Another one of my old poems from my notebook. This one evidently was written as a Christmas/Second Advent poem, with a rather bell-like tune.)

Joy! Joy! Joy! Joy! Forever and aye.
Peace! Light! Love! Hope! On this happy day.
Eternity in this moment is come.
God reigns forever, o’er everyone.

Ding, Dong, Ding, Dong, Ring now the bells.
Christ has returned, and all has come well.
Our waiting over, our victory won.
God kept His promise, and came through His Son.

Holy! Holy! Lord, God, and King.
“Thou art worthy!” We shout and sing.
Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end.
The King of everlasting glory, and our eternal friend.

Joy! Joy! Joy! Joy! Forever and aye.
Light! Hope! Love! Peace! Now and alway.
“Christ has returned!” we shout and we sing.
Through eternal ages let His praises ring.

Sing! Sing! Sing! Sing! Forever to the King!
JOY!
