170. How Great Our Joy!

1 While by the sheep we watched at night,
lo, there appeared an angel bright:

Refrain:
How great our joy! Great our joy!
Joy, joy, joy! Joy, joy, joy!
Glory to God who reigns on high!
Glory to God who reigns on high!

2 Born is the Child, in manger small,
whom God has sent to save us all. [Refrain]

3 Go you this night, and you shall find
the Savior born for humankind. [Refrain]

4 Jesus, the gift from heav'n above
fills all our hearts with joy and love. [Refrain]
