With Joyful Song We Greet The Day

With joyful song we greet the day
That saw our Lord arise,
With joy we meet to praise and pray
Beneath the list’ning skies.

In sweetest praise our voice we raise
To Him who dwells above;
Glad hearts we bring to Christ our King,
The Prince of life and love.

The hours of golden wings will fly,
Upborne by hope’s sweet gale,
And gladly bear, while speeding by,
Our songs o’er hill and dale. [Chorus]

Our blessed Jesus looks in love;
The angels on us gaze;
And richer is the song above,
Because we offer praise. [Chorus]
