"The Voices Of Rejoicing Love"
(Steve Bogard / Rick Giles)

Joy to the world the Lord is come
Let Earth received her King
Let every heart prepare Him room
And Heav'n and nature sing

By a one lane bridge on an old dirt road
That leads up to grandma's place
Someone cuttin' down the evergreen
They're gonna decorate

And miles away the bells are ringing on a street downtown
There're smiling faces everywhere and magic all around

You can hear the voices of rejoicing love rejoicing love
Singing joy to the world from up above
Bringing peace, good will to men
It's that special time again
You can hear the voices of rejoicing love

From Tennessee to Jerusalem families gather from far and wide
Here the smell of cookin' from Grandma's kitchen carries them all inside
And where cannons roar, they're silent for the crying of a child
And enemies or brother if only for a while

Later on in the silent night while the whole world's fast asleep
There's a feeling in the stillness by the light of the Christmas tree
