Christmas Day - Joy To The World


DSCF2282, by Angie Ouellette-Tower for godsgrowinggarden.com

 
 "For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace." Isaiah 9:6


 
 
Now turn with me to number 105 in your hymnals and let's sing:

Joy To The World
by Isaac Watts, 1674-1748                       composed by George F. Handel 1685-1759
                                                                  later music changed by Lowell Mason in 1839
1.  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.
2.  Joy to the world!  the Saviour 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.
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 cures is found.

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 His love, And wonders, wonders of His love.
