For the Third Day, our sing-along is “Joy to the World,” which we often hear as the opening or closing hymn on Christmas day itself. Like a lot of Christmas songs, this one started out as a poem. Here’s how it looked when first published.
Here are those lyrics as they work in the hymn:
Joy to the world! The Lord is come; Let earth receive her King. Let ev'ry heart prepare Him room, And heav'n and nature sing, And heav'n and nature sing, And heav'n, and heav'n, and nature sing! Joy to the world! The Savior reigns; Let us our songs employ; While fields and floods, rocks, hills, and plains Repeat the sounding joy, Repeat the sounding joy, Repeat, repeat the sounding joy. 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.
