Poetry Wednesday

By Judith

As everyone is recovering from the excesses of Christmas Day, here's a Merry Christmas message that gives the best reason for all the celebration. It's nice sometimes to look at the lyrics of Christmas carols without hearing the music (except in your head) and ponder what they mean and why they were written. Happy Christmas everyone.

Joy to the World

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 earth, the Saviour 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!

He rules the world with truth and grace
And makes the nations prove
The glories of His rightousness
And wonders of His love,
And wonders of His love,
And wonders, wonders of His love!
