Hymn 22.

C. M.

[Tune—Antioch.]

Joy to the world! The Lord is come.

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 earth! The Saviour reigns!

Let men their songs employ;

While fields, and floods, rocks, hills and plains

Repeat the sounding joy.

While fields, and floods, rocks, hills and plains

Repeat the sounding joy;

Joy to the earth! The Saviour reigns;

Let men their songs employ.

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.
