Original text and translations
1 A Song of Joy unto the Lord we sing,
And publish forth the favours he hath shown:
We sing his praise, from whom all joy doth spring,
And tell abroad the wonders he hath done;
For such were never since the world begun.
His love, therefore, oh! let us all confess ;
And to the sons of men his works express.
2 As on this day the Son of God was born,
The blessed Word was then incarnate made ;
The Lord to be a servant held no scorn ;
The Godhead was with human nature clad,
And flesh a throne above all Angels had.
His love, therefore, &c.
