"Joy to the World, the Lord is Come" by Isaac Watts, 1674-1748 Text From: THE HANDBOOK TO THE LUTHERAN HYMNAL (St. Louis: Concordia Publishing House, 1942) p.71 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. 2. Joy to the earth, the Savior reigns! Let men their songs employ, While fields and floods, rocks, hills, and plains 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. 4. He rules the world with truth and grace And makes the nations prove The glories of His righteousness And wonders of His love.This text was converted to ascii format for Project Wittenberg by Cindy A.
