A Carol for Christmas by Ruthie Thomas.
As the Advent and Christmas approaches, it is always good to have the opportunity to share new music, either sung as a solo or by the congregation. This Christmas Carol, written by Ruthie Thomas one Christmas morning, is entitled ‘Heaven’s Joy’.
You can download a PDF of the music and words here.
You may download and print this carol for local church use only provided that you hold a current CCL licence and include full details of any use in your returns to CCL. If you do not hold a CCL licence, or you wish to use the song for any other purpose, you need to contact Stainer & Bell Ltd in advance for permission.
