lyrics

Joy to the world! The Lord is come
Let earth receive her King!
Let every heart prepare him room
And heaven and nature sing

Joy to the earth! The Saviour reigns
Let men their songs employ
While fields and floods, rocks, hills, and plains
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

He rules the earth with truth and grace
And makes the nations prove
The glories of his righteousnes
And wonders of his love

Sufjan currently lives in New York City.
