Be Joyful
Poem by Betty Luerssen
Music by Martin Broones

Joyful, Be Joyful,
Be glad this day!
Joy in God’s goodness,
Be glad this day!

All God’s creation joys in His name:
Now let His children all do the same.

Song of the sparrow,
Kiss of the breeze;
Smile of the sunlight,
O joy in these!

Trees pointing upward,
Brooks singing free;
Blossom and starlight,
All joy in Thee.

All God’s creation joys in His name:
Now let His children all do the same.

Man in God’s likeness, Free from disease;
Perfect creation, O joy in these!
Men of all nations, upright and free;
Thy sons and daughters, All praising Thee!

Joyful, Be Joyful,
Be glad this day!
Joy in God’s goodness,
Be glad this day!

Alternate Ending for Easter
Christ is risen,
Be glad this day!

Alternate Ending for Thanksgiving
Joy in God’s goodness,
Give thanks this day!
