The Lord is Come

 

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 world!
The savior reigns
Let men their songs employ
While fields and flood
Rocks, hills, and plains
Repeat the sounding joy
Repeat the sounding joy
Repeat, 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
Far as the curse is found
Far as, far as the curse is found

He rules the world
With truth and grace
And makes the nations prove
The glories of
His righteousness
And wonders of his love
And wonders of his love
And wonders, and wonders of his love

The Adoration of the Magi, c. 1440/1460, Fra Angelico and Fra Filippo Lippi
