Hymn-ful Sundays! "Come and Join the Celebration"

The last Hymn-ful Sunday post! It's hard to believe that it's been a year already.

This week's hymn again speaks of the birth of our Saviour Jesus. It is a celebratory hymn written by Valerie Collison and is sung as one of the Christmas/Advent traditions of my home church in Barbados. Valerie Collison is a contemporary hymnwriter and organist from the United Kingdom, and this is one of her most popular compositions.

Come and join the celebration
It's a very special day
Come and share our jubilation
There's a new King born today!

See the shepherds, hurry down to Bethlehem
Gaze in wonder at the Son of God who lay before them:

Wise men journey, led to worship by a star
Kneel in homage, bringing precious gifts from lands afar, so

God is with us! Round the world the message bring.
He is with us! Welcome, all the bells on earth are pealing:

Valerie Collison

Let us celebrate, for God is with us! Let us invite others too, to share in this celebration of Christ. His birth represents for us a new beginning, a chance for new life. It is Jesus that makes every day a special day.

Be blessed and shine in jubilation!
