Another Easter Carol for Laughter Sunday

Here’s another possible Easter Carol for use on Holy Humor Sunday (May 1, 2011).  See the Christmas carol tune suggestion below.

Good Christians all, rejoice and sing!
Now is the triumph of our King!
How great our joy! (Great our joy!)
Joy, joy, joy! (Joy, joy, joy!)
Praise we the Lord in heav'n on high!
Praise we the Lord in heav'n on high!

Up from the grave he rose again,
Victory over death and sin!
How great our joy! (Great our joy!)
Joy, joy, joy! (Joy, joy, joy!)
Praise we the Lord in heav’n on high!
Praise we the Lord in heav’n on high!

Death has been conquered—love has won!
Praise to God’s high-exalted Son!
How great our joy! (Great our joy!)
Joy, joy, joy! (Joy, joy, joy!)
Praise we the Lord in heav’n on high!
Praise we the Lord in heav’n on high!

Raise hands and hearts—together sing!
Throughout the earth, in chorus ring!
How great our joy! (Great our joy!)
Joy, joy, joy! (Joy, joy, joy!)
Praise we the Lord in heav’n on high!
Praise we the Lord in heav’n on high!

Tune:  JUNGST (“How great our joy," which begins "While by the sheep we watched at night”)
