Sound, sound your instruments of joy
Sound, sound your instruments of joy
Sound your instruments of joy
Sound your instruments of joy
To triumph shake each string
To triumph shake each string
Let shouts of universal joy
Universal joy, universal joy
Welcome, welcome
Welcome the new born King

See, see the gladdening dawn appears
See, see the gladdening dawn appears
See the gladdening dawn appears
See the gladdening dawn appears
Bright angels deck the morn
Bright angels deck the morn
Behold the great I Am is here
Great I Am is here
Great I Am is here
The King, the King
The King of glory's born

Surprising scenes, stupendous love
Surprising scenes, stupendous love
Surprising scenes, stupendous love
Surprising scenes, stupendous love
The Lord of life descends
The Lord of life descends
He left his glorious clouds on high
Glorious clouds on high
Glorious clouds on high
To be, to be
To be the sinner's friend

Let Heaven and Earth and Sea proclaim
Let Heaven and Earth and Sea proclaim
Let Heaven and Earth and Sea proclaim
Let Heaven and Earth and Sea proclaim
The wondrous love of God
The wondrous love of God
And all the universal frame
Universal frame, universal frame
Sing praise, sing praise
Sing praises to our God

Sound, sound your instruments of joy
Sound, sound your instruments of joy
Sound your instruments of joy
Sound your instruments of joy
To triumph shake each string
To triumph shake each string
Let shouts of universal joy
Universal joy, universal joy
Welcome, welcome
Welcome the new born King
