Joy to Everyone!



I discovered this video last year and it has become an essential part of our Christmas celebrations.


I cannot begin to express how much it means to me.

It is the best way for me to start the Christmas season because it immediately helps me feel the love of my Father in Heaven and my Savior for ALL of us.

The words of the song share what my heart longs to express, and the pictures fill my heart with such JOY that I MUST share!!

This is what Christmas is all about!!

VERSE 1
Love, it was perfect love that came to earth,
Sent from heaven above
To the world that Christmas night.
Though just a Child, He was God’s own Son,
The Prince of Peace, He was the Holy One,
Come to save us from all sin.
Let all the world join in songs of praise,
For He is come, let your voice be raised
To every father and son, every nation and land,
Everyone.

Let there be love,
Let there be peace,
Let there be joy to everyone this Christmas.

VERSE 2
Laid in a manger at the time of His birth,
Now He is King over all of the earth
And the Savior of the world.
Come, let us worship Him and with the angels,
Sing peace, good will to all men,
Give glory to God in the highest.
Let all the world join in songs of praise,
For He is come, let your voice be raised
To every mother and child,
Like the Baby so mild who brought love.

He brought us love,
He taught us peace,
Let there be joy to everyone this Christmas.

VERSE 3
Love, it was perfect love that came to earth,
Sent from heaven above
To the world that Christmas night.
Come, let us worship Him and with the angels,
Sing peace, good will to all men,
Give glory to God in the highest.
Let all the world join in songs of praise,
For He is come, let your voice be raised
To every father and son, every nation and land,

Everyone!

Let every heart
Prepare Him room.
Let there be joy to everyone this Christmas.

Joy to the world the Lord is come!
