Joy to the World...

Joy to the World , the Lord is come!
Let earth receive her King;
Let every heart prepare Him room,
And Heaven and nature sing,
And Heaven and nature sing,
And Heaven, and Heaven, and nature sing.

Merry Christmas! The birth of Jesus Christ certainly did bring Joy to the World! A phrase in this first verse really needs to be considered is…” Let every heart prepare Him room”.

As Christmas 2011 is coming to a close….are our hearts prepared for Him, to give Him room? Either for the first time or for continued growth and space in our lives? Love this hymn. The Lord has come, He is King….Heaven and nature sing and we are called to sing too, not just with our lips but with our lives. Making Him room….in everything! Merry Christmas!
