Joy Has Come - A Christmas Cantata - Choral Book
With the majestic wonder of “You Shall Call His Name Jesus”, the infectious excitement of “Come, Let Us Go and See!” the tender longing of “Promised One” the cheerful swing of “Follow, Follow”, and the exuberant finale, “Joy Has Come”, we are reminded of God’s promise to send His Son, Jesus to be our Saviour – the Source of true, and everlasting joy. We are also challenged to be ready for Christ’s second coming. In John 16:22 Jesus says, “You now have sorrow; but I will see you again and your heart will rejoice, and your joy no one will take from you.”
Combined with the beautiful strains of well-loved carols, “Come, Thou Long Expected Jesus”, “Away in a Manger”, “Silent Night”, “Go Tell It On the Mountain”, and “Joy to the World”, Joy Has Come is the perfect fit for any Christmas choral presentation.
Joy Will Come with Come, Thou Long Expected Jesus; You Shall Call His Name Jesus; With Wonder We Behold Him with Away in a Manger and Silent Night; Glory to God in the Highest; Come, Let Us Go and See with Go, Tell It On the Mountain; Promised One; Follow, Follow; Prepare Ye the Way; and Joy Has Come with Joy to the World
