     9 Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion; shout, O daughter of Jerusalem: behold, thy King cometh unto thee: he is just, and having salvation; lowly, and riding upon an ass, and upon a colt the foal of an ass. 10 And I will cut off the chariot from Ephraim, and the horse from Jerusalem, and the battle bow shall be cut off: and he shall speak peace unto the heathen: and his dominion shall be from sea even to sea, and from the river even to the ends of the earth.(KJV)

1. Joy to the world, the Lord is come! 
Let earth receive her King; 
Let every heart prepare Him room 
And heaven and nature sing. 

2. Joy to the earth, the Savior reigns! 
Let men their songs employ, 
While fields and floods, rocks, hills, and plains 
Repeat the sounding joy. 

3. 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. 

4. He rules the world with truth and grace 
And makes the nations prove 
The glories of His righteousness 
And wonders of His love.
