Joy to the World Lyrics

Joy to the world, the Lord is come!
Let Earth receive her king
Let every heart prepare him room
And Heaven and nature sing

Joy to the world, the Savior reigns!
Let men their songs employ
While fields and floods, rocks, hills and plains
Repeat the sounding joy

No more let sins and sorrows grow
Nor thorns infest the ground
He comes to make his blessing flow
Far as the curse is found

He rules the world with truth and grace
And makes the nations prove
The glories of his righteousness
And wonders of his love

-Isaac Watts, 1719
