Isaac Watts, 1719

Joy to the world! the Lord is come;
Let earth receive her King.
Let ev'ry heart prepare Him room,
|: And heav'n and nature sing, :|
And heav'n and heav'n and nature sing.

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, :|
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
|: Far as the curse is found, :|
Far as, far as the curse is found.

4. 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, and wonders of His love.
