Difficulty Level: Medium


"Joy to the World" is a beautiful arrangement that incorporates the traditional hymn for the congregation with an SATB descant on the final verse.

Arranged by: Diane Tuiofu

Joy to the world, the Lord is come!

Let earth receive her King;

Let every heart prepare Him room,

And Saints and angels sing,

And Saints and angels sing,

And Saints, and Saints and angels sing.


Joy to the earth, when Jesus reigns!

And Saints their songs employ;

While fields and floods, rocks, hills and plains

Repeat the sounding joy,

Repeat the sounding joy,

Repeat, repeat, the sounding joy.


No more will sin and sorrow grow,

Nor thorns infest the ground;

He'll come and make the blessings flow

Far as the curse is found,

Far as the curse is found,

Far as, far as, the curse is found.


Rejoice! Rejoice in the Most High,

While Israel spreads abroad

Like stars that glitter in the sky,

And ever worship God,

And ever worship God,

And ever, and ever worship God.



Text: Isaac Watts Music: Handel
