JOY TO THE WORLD! 
   Words: Isaac Watts, 1719
   Tune: Antioch, Lowell Mason, 1848
   Based on Psalm 98

  (Capo 2 to play in key of D  key of C is high enough, IMHO)

   C   G         C      F    C     G7   C
1  Joy to  the   world! The  Lord  is   come:
2  Joy to  the   world! The  Sav - ior  reigns;
3  No  more let  sins   and  sor - rows grow
4  He  rules the world  with truth and  grace,

       F         G7        C
1  Let earth re -ceive her King;
2  Let men their songs em -ploy;
3  Nor thorns in-fest the  ground;
4  And makes the nations   prove

   (C)
1  Let every heart prepare Him room,
2  While fields and floods, rocks, hills, and plains
3  He comes to make His blessings flow
4  The glories of His righteousness

   (C)
1  And heaven and nature sing
2  Repeat the sounding joy
3  Far as the curse is found
4  And wonders of His love

       G                 G7
1  And heaven and nature sing
2  Repeat the  sounding  joy
3  Far as the curse  is  found
4  And wonders  of  His  love

       C      F     C      F    C     G7   C
1  And heaven and   heaven and  na  - ture sing
2  Re -peat,  re  - peat   the  sound-ing  joy
3  Far as,    far   as     the  curse is   found
4  And won  - ders, won  - ders of    His  love.
