          Joy to the world!  The Lord is come;
          Let earth receive her King.
          Let ev'ry heart prepare Him room,
          And heaven and nature sing,
          And heaven and nature sing,
          And heaven 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,
          Repeat the sounding joy,
          Repeat, repeat the sounding joy.

          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, 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,
          And wonders of His love,
          And wonders, wonders of His love.
