Joy to the World

Joy to the world, the Lord is come;
Let earth receive her King!
Let ev'ry heart prepare him room,
And Saints and angels sing,
And Saints and angels sing
And Saints and Saints and angels sing.

Rejoice! Rejoice when Jesus reigns,
And Saints their songs employ,
While fields and floods, rocks, hills, and plains
Repeat the sounding joy
Repeat the sounding joy
Repeat, repeat the sounding joy.

No more will sin and sorrow grow,
Nor thorns in-fest the ground!
He'll come and make the blessings flow
Far as the curse was found,
Far as the curse was found
Far as, Far as, the curse was found.

Rejoice! Rejoice in the Most High,
While Israel spreads a-broad!
Like stars that glitter in the sky,
And ever worship God,
And ever worship God,
And ever, and ever worship God!

Joy to the World!
Joy to the World!
Joy! Joy! Joy!

About the Song:
Our Choir performed this for the first time last Christmas. This song was written for the choir to sing WITH the congregation, with both organ and piano playing together. The spirit that I felt when we sang this song was powerful. I have never experienced something so spiritually moving, as when as I was able to conduct this song with voices and (orchestration) surrounding me. It was amazing, and I truly hope I'll have that opportunity again with a full orchestra as well!

Comments on 'Joy to the World':

"I really need separate scores for just the choir and another score for the piano and organ or something similar. The worlds and notes are too small for the choir to see." ~ Linda Mueller

"Is there a way to get a copy of just the piano and organ music. It is a little small and our pianist has a hard time reading the music. It is beautiful and we love this song. I was just wondering if you had it available." ~ Rainy Rosenbaum

"Yes Linda! The link is at the top of the page: This is a beautiful song! I hope you enjoy it!" ~ Lindy Kerby

"Is there any way of getting a score of this "Joy to the World" arrangement for piano and organ and choir and congregation? Thanks.Linda Mueller" ~ Linda Mueller
