Joy to the World

The Common Rule

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 earth!
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.

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, and wonders
of his love.
