Sabbath Rest – Jesus, Joy of Heaven

Another lesser-known (and newer) children’s Christmas Carol written and performed by Keith and Kristyn Getty.

Jesus, Joy of Heaven

Jesus, joy of the highest heaven,
Born as a little baby
Under a wondrous star.
Like us, crying he takes
His first breath
Held by His mother, helpless
Close to her beating heart.

Jesus, laid in a lowly manger,
Facing a world of dangers,
Come to turn me a stranger
Into a child of God.

Jesus, King of the highest heaven
Learning to take His first steps,
That He might bring us life.
Like us, knowing our smiles and sorrows,
He showed the way to follow,
A way that is true and right.

Jesus, take away every darkness,
Steady my simple footsteps
That I might in your goodness
Live as a child of God.

  1. I have this CD! And, I saw the ‘JOY, An Irish Christmas-2015’ concert at the Kimmel
    on the 7th. (Just saying. Just bragging:) Pure delight, Steph.

  2. Oh, Bonnie! You really know how to hurt a girl’s heart. So glad you’ve been able to see these guys in concert – and maybe someday I will be able to, too! love you!
