Christmas Carols: Joy to the World
There is a wonderful sense of joy surrounding Christmas and there is no better way to spread it than by singing carols with the kids. Joy to the world indeed at this magical time of year.
What you need:
Number of players:
Joy to the world! The Lord is come:
let earth receive her King!
Let every heart prepare him room,
and heaven and nature sing.
Joy to the earth! the Saviour reigns:
let men their songs employ,
while fields and floods, rocks, hills and plains
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.
He rules the earth with truth and grace,
and makes the nations prove
the glories of his righteousness
and wonders of his love.
- You can find the tune to this carol on youtube.
