Christmas Songs – Joy To The World lyrics

[Verse 1]
Joy to the World, the Lord has come!
Let earth receive her King;
Let every heart prepare Him room,
And Heaven and nature sing,
And Heaven and nature sing
And Heaven, and Heaven, and nature sing.

[Verse 2]
Joy to the World, the Savior reigns!
Let men their songs employ;
While fields and floods, rocks, hills and plains
Repeat the sounding joy,
Repeat the sounding joy,
Repeat, repeat, the sounding joy.

[Verse 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,
Far as the curse is found,
Far as, far as, the curse is found.

[Verse 4]
He rules the world with truth and grace,
And makes the nations prove
The glories of His righteousness,
And wonders of His love,
And wonders of His love,
And wonders, wonders, of His love

    This song is praise of the Lord at His second coming to set up the Kingdom of a Thousand Years! Only Then will all of these things take place on earth. They are a hope for the future now. Praise to Jesus Christ and all He means to us in our hearts and in the future. Those who know and follow Him will be with and reign with Him forever!

    Indeed Joy has come to the World by the virgin birth of jesus christ our Saviour. It is up to mankind to embrace it. He stands at the door or the entrance of your heart knocking.
    Please all that you have to do is to accept him as your Lord and personal saviour. And you will.
    Testify about this joy in Christ Jesus. The Lord keep you from falling, cause his face to shine upon you, and above all feel His Joy all the days of your life. The joy of the Lord is my strength. Stay blessed, amen.

    I'm not christian, but this beautiful song I believe Handel, the composer, was inspired by "god". I don't know what god is, but I do have a feeling that if Jesus existed, he was inspired too by this same force. this song is so uplifting, it is amazing. Such a simple song , yet so powerful the feel of it. it burst out at you from the very beginning. just slams away at you, Joy to the world! the lord has come. I do wish he would come back, and save us from ourselves, but I fear it's just wishful thinking.

    To me this song is about how god gave up his only son and sent him to Earth. Jesus (God's son and the lord) was born from the Virgin Mary, she is also known as Marry. Some people refer to her in different ways. But anyways I think it's about how people are singing this song worshiping God and Jesus following the star to the manger were they find baby Jesus in his bed of hay. They sing bowing to the new born child as he is their king, the only son of god himself in living flesh right before them. They raise their hands singing still as the baby smiles soon growing up. He had worshipers everywhere. So many he couldn't count them all. Finally the day comes where he is hung onto a cross sacrificing his life for us all. Us being the foolish people we are today, judging people for being them self's and hurting people close to us. He cleaned us of all our sins and so we made this song praising him, the son of God, Marry and Joseph, we give him thanks, the thanks we hope he hears as we sing this song for him up in heaven with his holly father, God.

    The Lord is come now, and we get to "prove" it in the here and now. Let earth receive her king in this moment and the next. At the in-laws for the holidays and one of our dogs seemed to have some kind of episode. The minute we turned to God and insisted on His presence here, now, the dog stood up. As I continued to pray the first words of this song came to mind. Joy to the world, the Lord IS come. AMEN.
