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 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.

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.

Hi! I found your blog from another blog that I'd clicked on from Laura at The Wellblog. I enjoyed looking at your blog. I put the words to Hark the Herald Angels Sing on my blog. These songs are a blessing to us, aren't they?

Merry Christmas,

With candles lit and held high, we sang this hymn on Christmas Eve. It never fails to leave me with my tears and my thankfulness.

Hope yours was filled with the true blessing of remembrance. I'm recovering today.

All is well with my soul.
