JOY
We wait in joy for his being born
Saviour of the world so well sworn
Eyes peeled watching for that star
Once wise men followed from afar
He comes again to bring that hope
Just when we think we cannot cope
Dare we forget his holy sacrifice
Already is paid redemption's price
What a wondrous season of longing
We endure a new sense of belonging
To kingdom gathered under His wing
His salvation wisely then to cling
Thus the cause of great and lasting joy
Our hearts a manger for this baby boy
