Hymn Stories: Joy to the World


This is the fourth episode of the month, which means we will be looking at a story of a great song or hymn of the Christian faith. We will look at the people who wrote these beautiful hymns, we will read the lyrics, and I’ll provide a link below to click where you can listen to the hymns we talk about.

Scripture references:

Psalm 98

Genesis 3:17-19

Romans 5:20

This time we are talking about the hymn “Joy to the World” by Isaac Watts, arranged first by George Frederic Handel , then by Lowell Mason.

You can listen the the tune, read the lyrics, and more at the Hymnology Archive site.

Here is a link on YouTube to listen to Joy to the World by Anthem Lights rendition of this hymn.
