Jesus, Joy of the Highest Heaven.

I know Christmas is over, but I just got the Getty's Christmas CD Joy - an Irish Christmas and I've been listening to it every day!  I love it!  And I love Christmas carols, too!  Here's the words to one of my favorites on the CD.

"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."
