Jesus Joy of the Highest Heaven (A Children’s Carol)

Keith wrote the melody of this carol for Kristyn when she was pregnant with Eliza. Kristyn then penned the lyrics as a simple carol for children to sing about how Christ became human like us so that we could become children of God. We were very excited to bring together a choir of children from Northern Ireland for this recording.

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.
