Joy to the World

“Joy to the world” is a popular American Christmas song and the most-published Christmas hymn in North America. The words were written by English hymn writer Isaac Watts, based on Psalm 98 in the Bible.

The music, which was based on an older melody which was then believed to have originated from Handel, was adapted and arranged to Watts’ lyrics by a leading figure in American church music, Lowell Mason, in 1839.


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.
