101. Joy to the world! the Lord is come

C.M.

Chesterfield:

Thomas Haweis, 1792

Isaac Watts, 1719

Joy to the world! the Lord is come:

Let earth receive her King;

Let every heart prepare him room

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.

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.
