A new joy

Here new joy has come to a world of woe,
For a star shines bright, and it shines on all.
Here the Christ is born of a Virgin pure,
and a human child lies in swathing bands.
Here a shepherd kneels, and a tiny lamb.
And they sing to God as the bow in prayer.
You, our heav'nly king, you, our God and Lord,
grant us years of joy, bless us all tonight.
May we live in peace. May we serve our God.
And for evermore, may we be with Him.

words by Sheena Phillips, based on Vladimir Morozov's translation. The original Ukrainian words are included in the score.
