Tens of thousands of you voted for your favourite Christmas carols - and we have a new number one for the first time in 12 years! Click through the gallery below to see the top 30. And listen to Classic FM from 1pm on Christmas Day to hear the countdown of all 30 carols.
With lyrics by English hymn writer Isaac Watts, the carol is based on Psalm 98 from the Bible. It was first published in 1719 as a hymn glorifying Christ's triumphant return at the end of the age, rather than a song celebrating his birth - but today it's sung as a Christmas carol, celebrating the birth of Jesus. And it's gone up three places to enter the top ten.
