Part VI
Joy to the World! (vs. 1,2,3)
Joy to the world! the Lord is come; let earth receive her King.
Let every heart prepare Him room,
And heav’n and nature sing, and heav’n and nature sing,
And heav’n, and heav’n 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 sin and sorrow 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.

Thank You
