1.Joy to the world! the lord is come;
Let earth re-ceive her King;
Let ev-ery heart pre-pare him room,
And heaven and na-ture sing,
And heaven and na-ture sing,
And heaven and na-ture sing.
2.Joy to the world! the Sav-iour reigns;
Let men their songs em-ploy
While fields and floods,
rocks, hills and plains
Re-peat the sound-ing joy,
Re-peat the sound-ing joy,
Re-peat, re-peat the sound-ing joy.
3.He rules the world with truth and grace,
And makes the nations prove
The glo-ries of his right-eous-ness,
And won-ders of his love,
And won-ders of his love
And won-ders, and won-ders of his love.
A-men.
