Jesus Christ is God Incarnate Like Three Dog Night Would Sing It

I told a dear friend and sister-in-Christ who enjoys the tune of the Three Dog Night song Joy to the World that I would write some lyrics for that tune which we could all sing during our times of fellowship. For some reason, after a few weeks of not having a good time to think about it, it started piling into my head last night while I was trying to go to sleep! So, around midnight, I finally got up and wrote it all down.

Remember, the original song begins with “Jeremiah was a bullfrog” in full force. See lyrics printed below.

 

 

Jesus Christ is God Incarnate

 

Jesus Christ is God Incarnate

He is our savior, friend, and king

He lived and died and rose again to give us life

This is why we sing

The rocks will sing if we don’t sing

 

(chorus)

We have joy in this world

Hope in eternity

Humbled by forgiveness and renewed by love

One church in unity

 

We know he sent his spirit

To teach us how to live

We encourage one another as we walk by faith

His truth is transformative

 

(chorus)

We have joy in this world

Hope in eternity

(We are) Humbled by forgiveness and renewed by love

(We’re) One church in unity

 

(musical interlude)

 

We know one day his kingdom will come

No more sorrow or disease

He will reign in perfect peace and we will see his face

On a new earth with new bodies (x2)

 

(chorus)

We have joy in this world

Hope in eternity

Humbled by forgiveness and renewed by love

One church in unity

 

(repeat chorus)

 

Joy in this world, hope in eternity (x2)

 

(chorus again, play with it)

(We have) joy in this world

Hope in eternity

(We are) Humbled by forgiveness and renewed by love

(We’re) One church in unity

 

(chorus 4 more times? I lost track!)

 

And there you have it! I hope it makes some of you as happy singing it as it makes me. I would love to see videos of people singing along!
