Verse 1
Joy to the world! the Lord is come;
Let earth receive her King;
Let every heart prepare Him room,
And heaven and nature sing, (2ce)
And heaven, and heaven and nature sing.

Verse 2
Joy to the earth! the Saviour reigns;
Let men their songs employ;
While fields and floods, rocks, hills and plains,
Repeat the sounding joy, (2ce)
Repeat, repeat the sounding joy.

Verse 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, (2ce)
Far as, far as the curse is found.

Verse 4
He rules the world with truth and grace
And makes the nations prove.
The glories of His righteousness,
And wonders of His love, (2ce)
And wonders, and wonders of His love.
