The popular Christmas hymn, "Joy to the World," was actually written about the Second Coming of Christ. But it is now one of the most popular Christmas songs ever. If you listen carefully, you will hear music from Handel's "The Messiah."

One cannot help but feel real joy in the heart when he/she sings it. It is an exuberant melody and message.




JOY TO THE WORLD
Isaac Watts
1719

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.
