Joy To The World!

As it appears in the Book Of Praise by Church of the Pilgrims (Brooklyn, New York) Charles S. Robinson 1865 

1 Joy to the world, the Lord is come!
Let earth receive her King;
Let every heart prepare him room,
And heaven and nature sing
2 Joy to the world, the Saviour reigns;
Let men their songs employ;
While fields and floods, rocks, hills and plains,
Repeat the sounding joy
3 No more let sin and sorrow grow,
Nor thorns infest the ground;
He comes to make his blessings flow
Far as the curse is found
4 He rules the world with truth and grace,
And makes the nations prove
The glories of his righteousness,
And wonders of his love
