Joy to the world,
the Lord is come,
Let earth re-ceive her King;
Let eve-ry heart pre-pare-him room,
And heaven and na-ture sing-
And heaven and na-ture sing 
And heaven and nature sing.

Joy to the earth-the Saviour reigns!
Let men their songs employ;
While fields and floods, rocks, hills, and plains,
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.

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