Joy to world, the lord is come;
Let earth receive her king.
Let ev'ry heart prepare him room
And heaven and nature sing (3x)
Joy to the world, the saviour reigns;
Let men their songs employ,
While fields and floods, rock, hills and plains,
Repeat the sounding joy (3x)
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 (3x)
He rules the world with truth and grace,
And makes the nation prove
The glories of his righteouness
And wonder of his love (3x)
