Heaven Rings with Joyful Tidings

Tunes: All for Jesus or Laus Deo (Redhead No.46) 87 87

1. Heaven rings with joyful tidings,
Angels sing of peace on earth;
Love and joy and hope and promise,
Mary’s boy child brought to birth!

2.In the speaking of your story,
In the singing of your song;
In the silence of our praying
Grant the peace for which we long.

3.In our tears and in our sorrow,
In our sharing and our care;
In our laughter and our gladness
We believe that you are near.

4.In a world where many hunger
You shall offer living bread; 
When the thirsty long for water
You shall be the fountainhead.

5.At this Christmastide we welcome
God with us, Emmanuel;
Prince of Peace for our salvation,
Holy Child with us to dwell.

6.Heaven rings with joyful tidings,
Angels sing of peace on earth;
Love and joy and hope and promise,
Mary’s boy child brought to birth!
