O Joy of Joys! Your mercies new each morning
Make me to rise up from the cold, dark night
O warm my soul and fill my heart with longing
For You alone upon Your throne of light.
O Joy of Joys! Such lilting joy and wonder
To see Thy majesty now fill this place
O Joy of Joys! The beauty and the splendor!
O Joy of Joys! To know Thy glory, truth and grace!
O You shall come at trumpet’s sound some morning
Darkness retreats and all fall at Thy feet
O Joy of Joys! To now behold My Lord and King
O Joy of Joys! And rhapsody so sweet!
May be sung to the traditional “Londonderry Air” melody (“Danny Boy”)
