Rejoice! God is with us, let praises resound;
the way of salvation through flesh has been found.
The advent of Jesus has banished the night;
God broke through the darkness and turned it to light!
Come hear this, all you who are lonely and blue;
what prophets have promised is proven and true.
His coming has happened; no more must we wait.
Break forth into joy and with songs celebrate!
He tenderly reaches to those who are lost,
brings blessings and pardon and counts not the cost.
The bonds of oppression are shattered and torn,
the fractures are mended, the faithless reborn.
Rejoice! God is with us, make known to the earth
the love and the splendor of Bethlehem's birth.
O marvelous coming, miraculous thing,
by way of a manger - our Savior and King!
