Joy Oh Joy

SATB Choir, Descant/Solo & Piano
Words and music by Joannie Ing

An original work scored for SATB choir, piano and soloist/descant. It was written and recorded during the Covid-19 pandemic to bring hope and cheer amidst the lonely Christmas season of 2020.

Performed by choristers from Scarborough Community Alliance Church (December 2020)


Joy oh joy! To the baby boy!
Who has come,
Who has come to save us
Joy oh joy! To the baby boy!
Son of God,
Son of God, His name is Jesus

Verse 1

There is sadness, there is sorrow
Deep within my heart
At this point in time,
Where we have to stand apart

Pre-Chorus 1

But one day long ago,
Oh blessed holy night
The Messiah was born
The world’s eternal light

Verse 2

Once upon a silent night
Began the Christmas story
Wiseman followed a star and worshiped
Giving God the glory

Pre-Chorus 2

As shepherds tended sheep
Heavenly angels declared,
“Praise be to God!
We’ve wonderful news to share!”


Repeat the sounding joy!
Repeat the sounding joy!
Repeat, repeat the sounding joy!


Joy oh joy! Joy oh joy!
Joy oh joy! Joy oh joy!
Son of God, His name is Jesus!
