Composed: 2003
Sung by: The Oxford Choir
Album: Christmas Choral Highlights


Rejoice and be merry in songs and in mirth,
O praise our Redeemer, all mortals on earth,
For this is the birthday of Jesus our King,
Who brought us salvation, His praises we'll sing.

Rejoice and be merry in songs and in mirth,
O praise our Redeemer, all mortals on earth,
For this is the birthday of Jesus our King,
Who brought us salvation, His praises we'll sing.

A heavenly vision appeared in the sky.
Vast numbers of angels the shepherds did spy,
Proclaiming the birthday of Jesus our King,
Who brought us salvation, His praises we sing.

Likewise a bright star in the sky did appear,
Which led the Wise Men from the East to draw near.
They found the Messiah, sweet Jesus our King,
Who brought us salvation, His praises we'll sing.

And when they were come, they their treasures unfold,
And unto Him offered myrrh, incence, and gold.
So blessed forever be Jesus our King,
Who brought us salvation, His praises we'll sing.

Rejoice and be merry,
Rejoice and be merry,
Rejoice and be merry, rejoice and be merry,
Rejoice, rejoice, rejoice!
