Joy To The World

A few weeks ago, our Pastor preached a message at church which included some information about the Christmas Carole, Joy To The World.  I love this Christmas Carol and look forward to singing it at church each year.

Apparently, this hymn was not written for Jesus' birth, but is actually written about Jesus' second coming.

I will now have a very different heart when I sing this song... and really I'll feel like I can sing it year round.  Take a look at the lyrics, now with the idea of Jesus' return to Earth, for His Eternal Kingdom in the future:

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.

Joy To The World...
