1.
Joyful the news that the angles were telling:
Joyful the music the holy anthems swelling:
Joyful the eye that beheld the heav'nly glory:
Joyful the ear that heard the sacred story
Of a savior born.

Chorus:
Joyful the News!
Joyful the News!
Joyful the News!
Oh let ev'ry bell be ringing!
Joyful the News!
Let ev'ry heart be singing
Of the Saviour born.

2
Joyful the News! Oh, away with thy sadness:
Joyful the news! Let each heart be fill'd with gladness:
Jesus has come. He is lying in a manger:
Jesus has come. Behold the heav'nly Stranger:
Tis the Savior born.
Refrain.

3.
Joyful the child who the glad news is singing:
Joyful the music the mery bells are ringing:
Joyful the soul that the Savior hath forgiven:
Joyful the heart that has a hope in heaven.
Through the Savior born.
Refrain.
