Joy To The World

Joy to world, the Lord is come
(Have you every stopped and thought this song through?)
Let earth receive her King.
(Is that not the prayer of all Christians?)
Let ev'ry heart prepare him room
( I have prayed this during this Christmas season that every heart could prepare room for Jesus)
And heaven and nature sing
And heaven and nature sing
And heaven and heaven and nature sing.
(Would it not be a blessing for heaven and nature so celebrate this joyous day)
This past week was my monthly dinner date with the "girls". I made them all wreaths with some of my antique ornaments with the Lyrics of this song attached. We talked about how many times we sing it.. It was our "devotion for the night" so to speak... and speak to me it did. I love this song. About three weeks ago as I was spending my quiet time, this song came on the xm and I chose to make that my prayer for this Christmas season... so please join me in singing (and praying) the rest of this precious song.
Joy to the world, the saviour reigns
Let men their songs employ,
While fields and floods, rock, hills and plains,
Repeat the sounding joy
Repeat the sounding joy
Repeat repeat the sounding joy!
No more let sin and sorrow grow,
Nor thorns infest the ground.
He comes to make his blessings flow
Far as the curse is found
Far as the curse is found
Far as far as the curse is found.
He rules the world
with truth and grace,
And makes the nation prove
(People do you hear what this old Christmas carol is saying? )
The glories of his righteouness
And wonder of His love
And wonder of His love
And wonder and wonder of His Love!
Merry CHRISTmas!

Hi, I wanted to thank you for being a visitor to my blog and apologize for it taking me so long to come over to visit yours. I just looked at your Christmas decor and Wow!...all those vinage ornies made my heart skip a beat. You have so many gorgeous decorations. I can see that wehave similar tastes. Oh, and I really love your vintage ornament wreath, and how you hung it in a pretty frame. What a creative idea! I'll definately be coming around here more often for inspiration.
