Joy to the World

Lyrics,Music:Isaac Watts

The song was publishe 1719.

The father of John Watts was a Non-conformist
and so extreme were his views that he was imprisoned twice.
His father's influence over Isaac was demonstrated when he choose to
attend Non-conformist Academy at Stoke Newington
in preference to a University.
Watts was ordained as a Pastor of an Independent congregation.
He wrote many hymns and Carols and was awarded a Doctor of Divinity
degree by the the University of Edinburgh in 1728.
The music to the carol is by George Frederick Handel (1685-1759).
Our grateful thanks goes to Eric Halstead for giving his kind permission
to play his self sequenced midi file of this superb piano rendition
of this Christmas Carol.

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 earth! 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 blessing 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.
