Joy to the World!

Joy to the world! The Lord is Come:
Let earth receive her King;
Let every heart prepare Him room,
And heav'n and nature sing, And heav'n and nature sing,
And heav'n, and heav'n and nature sing.

Joy to the earth! 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, wonders of His love.

Merry Christmas, Nikki! I agree with Marva that your Christmas card is great! One of these years I'm going to get myself organized and send out Christmas cards. :)

Marva, thanks! This is my favorite Christmas hymn, so I thought I would share it.

Laura, thanks! You see how late I got our out. *Sigh* One day I'll get them out as early as Marva.

Both of you are up (and online) early this morning, but then, I guess so am I.
