joy to the world lyrics – jason gray

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

joy, joy
the hope of every heart
comes alive in emmanuel

joy to the world, the savior reigns!
let men their songs employ
while fields and floods, rocks, hills and plains
repeat the sounding joy
repeat the sounding joy

joy, joy
the hope of every heart
comes alive in emmanuel

desire of the nations
the light of our salvation
the heart of god that heals us
his name is jesus
hallelujah!

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

joy, joy
the hope of every heart
comes alive in emmanuel
the hope of all mankind
comes alive in emmanuel
