Joy to the World , the Lord is 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.

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.

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.

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

    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 believe that Issac Watts wrote this song when he was in a bad part of his life. His love had left him and his health was bad, I think it's amazing though that he could still praise God! He wants us to be ready, and willing to accept the joy that God(Jesus) has for us. I have, you definitely should too! It will change your life completely!
