Joy to the World!

Lyrics ~ Isaac Watts, 1674-1748

Music ~ adapted from G.F.Handel, 1685-1759 and arranged by Lowell Mason, 1792-1872



Stanza 1:

Joy to the world, the Lord is come!

Let earth receive her King;

Let ev'ry heart prepare Him room,

And heav'n and nature sing,

And heav'n and nature sing,

And heav'n and nature sing.



Stanza 2:

Joy to the world, the Savior reigns!

Let all their songs employ;

While fields and floods, rocks, hills, and plains

Repeat the sounding joy,

Repeat the sounding joy,

Repeat the sounding joy.



Stanza 3:

No more let sins and sorrows grow,

Nor thorns infest the ground;

He comes to make His blessings flow

Far as the curse is found,

Far as the curse is found,

Far as the curse is found.



Stanza 4:

He rules the world with truth and grace,

And makes the nations prove

The glories of His righteousness,

And wonders of His love,

And wonders of His love,

And wonders of His love.
