Joy to the world, the Lord has come

Joy to the world, the Lord has come!
Let earth receive her King,
let every heart prepare him room,
and heaven and nature sing,
and heaven and nature sing,
and heaven, and heaven and nature sing!

2. Joy to the earth, the Saviour reigns!
Your sweetest songs employ,
while fields and streams and hills and plains
repeat the sounding joy,
repeat the sounding joy,
repeat, repeat the sounding joy.

3. No more let sins and sorrows grow
nor thorns infest the ground:
he comes to make his blessings flow
where Eden’s curse is found,
where Eden’s curse is found,
wherever Eden’s curse is found.

4. He rules the world with truth and grace
and makes the nations prove
the glories of his righteousness,
the wonders of his love,
the wonders of his love,
the wonders, wonders of his love.
