316. Joy to the world, the Lord is come

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.
(Repeat previous line)
And heaven, And heaven and nature sing.

2.
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 previous line)
Repeat, Repeat the sounding joy.

3.
No more let sin and sorrow grow,
Nor thorns infest the ground;
He comes to make his blessings flow
Far as the curse is found.
(Repeat previous line)
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.
(Repeat previous line)
And wonders, And wonders of his love.
