Joy to the World (Phelps)
HYMN 15. C. M.
1 Joy to the world! the Lord will come!
And earth receive her King;
Let ev'ry heart prepare him room,
And saints and angels sing.
2 Rejoice! rejoice! when Jesus reigns!
And saints their songs employ:
While fields and floods, rocks, hills and
Repeat the sounding joy.
3 No more will sins and sorrows grow,
Nor thorns infest the ground;
He'll come and make the blessings flow
Far as the curse was found.
4 Rejoice! rejoice! in the Most High,
While Israel spread abroad,
Like stars that glitter in the sky,
And ever worship God.
