7 For thus saith the LORD; Sing with gladness for Jacob, and shout among the chief of the nations: publish ye, praise ye, and say, O LORD, save thy people, the remnant of Israel. 8 Behold, I will bring them from the north country, and gather them from the coasts of the earth, and with them the blind and the lame, the woman with child and her that travaileth with child together: a great company shall return thither. 9 They shall come with weeping, and with supplications will I lead them: I will cause them to walk by the rivers of waters in a straight way, wherein they shall not stumble: for I am a father to Israel, and Ephraim is my firstborn.(KJV)

1. Now sing we, now rejoice, 
Now raise to heaven our voice; 
He from whom joy streameth 
Poor in a manger lies; 
Not so brightly beameth 
The sun in yonder skies. 
Thou my Savior art! 
Thou my Savior art! 

2. Come from on high to me; 
I cannot rise to Thee 
Cheer my wearied spirit, 
O pure and holy Child; 
Through Thy grace and merit, 
Blest Jesus, Lord most mild, 
Draw me unto Thee! 
Draw me unto Thee! 

3. Now through His Son doth shine 
The Father’s grace divine. 
Death o’er us had reigned 
Through sin and vanity; 
He for us obtained 
Eternal joy on high. 
May we praise Him there! 
May we praise Him there! 

4. Oh, where shall joy be found? 
Where but on heavenly ground? 
Where the angels singing 
With all His saints unite, 
Sweetest praises bringing 
In heavenly joy and light. 
Oh, that we were there! 
Oh, that we were there!
