Joy To The World

Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all the earth:
make a loud noise, and rejoice, and sing.
- Psalm 98: 4 -


Joy to the World, the Lord is 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.


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.
- Isaac Watts -


And the angel said unto them, 
Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, 
which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David
a Saviour,
which is Christ the Lord.
- Luke 2:10, 11 -


Have a blessed Lord's Day, friends!
