          HYMN 15. C. M.
 1 Joy to the world! the Lord will come!
     And earth receive her King;
   Let ev'ry heart prepare him room,
     And saints and angels sing.
 2 Rejoice! rejoice! when Jesus reigns!
     And saints their songs employ:
  While fields and floods, rocks, hills and
     Repeat the sounding joy.
 3 No more will sins and sorrows grow,
     Nor thorns infest the ground;
   He'll come and make the blessings flow
     Far as the curse was found.
 4 Rejoice! rejoice! in the Most High,
     While Israel spread abroad,
   Like stars that glitter in the sky,
     And ever worship God.
