236. O Thou Joyful Day

1 O thou joyful day,
O thou blessed day,
gladsome, peaceful Christmastide.
Earth’s hope awaken,
Love life has taken.
Joy, O, joy to all at Christmastide.

2 O sanctissima,
O sanctissima,
gladsome, peaceful Christmastide.
Light now is beaming,
our souls redeeming.
Joy, O, joy to all at Christmastide.
