Sound, Sound Your Instruments of Joy

A new setting by New England composer Bruce Randall from Nym Cooke's Awake to Joy: Christmas Carols for Part-Singing. Additional verses are from NOBC (p. 321).

Sound, sound, your instruments of joy! To Zion shake each string
Let shouts of universal joy welcome the new born King!

See! see the glad'ning dawn appears, Bright angels deck the morn;
Behold! the great I AM is given; The King of Glory born.

Surprising scene! stupendous love! The Lord of Life, descend!
He left His glorious realms above To be the sinner's friend.

Let heav'n and earth and sea proclaim Thy wondrous love abroad,
And all the universal frame Sing praises to our God.
