Music by Lowell Mason

Joy to the world, the new year’s come.
Now earth prepares for spring.
Let every hearth with firelight bloom,
And heaven and nature sing,
And heaven and nature sing,
And heaven, and heaven and nature sing.

Joy to the earth, now gladness reigns,
And birds 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 will cold and darkness grow,
Though frost still coats the ground.
We wait to hear the rivers flow
As far as hope is found,
As far as hope is found,
As far, as far as hope is found.

She heals the earth with truth and grace,
And asks us all to prove
The glories of Her righteousness
And wonders of Her love,
And wonders of Her love,
And wonders, and wonders of Her love.
