Joy to the world! the Lord will come
, 10


1. Joy to the world! the Lord will comeAnd earth receive her King;Let every heart prepare Him room,And Saints and angels sing.
2. Rejoice! rejoice! When Jesus reigns,And Saints their songs employ;While fields and floods, rocks, hills and plains,Repeat the sounding joy.
3. No more will sin and sorrow grow,Nor thorns infest the ground;He’ll come and make the blessings flowFar as the curse was found.
4. Rejoice! rejoice in the Most High!While Israel spreads abroadLike stars that glitter in the sky,And ever worship God.
