Here is a Sicilian Hymn that I don’t hear too often at Christmas time. It’s strikingly lovely and I would like to share the words with you:

O Thou Joyful Day

“O thou joyful day, O thou blessed day, Gladsome, peaceful Christmastide. Earth’s hopes awaken, Christ life hath taken, Praise Him, O praise Him on every side.

O thou joyful day, O thou blessed day, Gladsome, peaceful Christmastide. Christ’s light is beaming, Our souls redeeming, Praise Him, O praise Him on every side.

O thou joyful day, O thou blessed day, Gladsome, peaceful Christmastide. King of all glory, We bow before Thee, Praise Him, O praise Him on every side.”

joyful day
