Joyful News (Resignation) 244

Tune: Dr. Thomas W. Carter, 1844; Arranged by N. F. Cheshire, 1902
Lyrics: Isaac Watts, 1719
Meter: Common Meter (8,6,8,6)
Joy to the world, the Lord is come!
Let earth receive her King;
Let evíry heart prepare Him room,
And heav'n and nature sing.

No more let sins and sorrows grow,
Nor thorns in fest the ground;
He comes to make his blessings flow
Far as the curse is found.
