Hymn, ‘Joy to the World’

By reader request, here’s Joy to the World, with printed lyrics.

Did you know those lyrics were by Isaac Watts, early in the 19th century? I didn’t know that.

I remember we always used to sing this in Spanish class, to Spanish lyrics, back when public schools allowed the celebration of Christmas: Paz en el mundo, pax y amor…

The times are evil, O Lord: but Christ is come into the world, to cast out the prince of this world.

Move us to sing louder!

  1. And it wouldn’t seem like Christmas without “Little Drummer Boy”. Maybe he could find his way here? 🙂
