Lyrics brought to you by Segnbora-t


Christmas carol with words by Isaac Watts vaguely based on Psalm 98, and music by Lowell Mason (Mason claimed to have based his music on George Frideric Handel, but various sites say scholars can't really find anything in this tune that comes from Handel. kerawall suggested, "I'm no music scholar, but the tune for that song sounds remarkably similar to two pieces in Handel's Messiah. Maybe that's what Mason meant? Just a guess.")

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 floods, 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.

Or, the song goes in schools all over the world during the Christmas season:

Joy to the world, the teachers dead.
I barbecued her head!
What happened to the bo-ody?
I flushed it down the potty
And round and round she goes,
And round and round she goes,
And round and round and round she goes.
