Joy! Joy! Joy to the world! The Lord is come, let earth receive her King. Let every heart prepare Him room, and heaven and nature sing. Joy to the earth! The Savior reigns; Let us our songs employ. While fields and floods rocks, hills and plains 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. He rules the world with truth and grace and makes the nations prove the glories of His righteousness and wonders of His love. Joy! Joy! Joy to the world! The Lord is come!.

Scripture Lesson:

"Comfort, oh comfort my people," says your God. "Speak softly and tenderly to Jerusalem, but also make it very clear that she has served her sentence, that her sin is taken care of—forgiven. She's been punished enough and more than enough, and now it's over and done with." Thunder in the desert! “Prepare for God's arrival. Make the road straight and smooth, a highway fit for our God. Fill in the valleys, level off the hills, Smooth out the ruts, clear out the rocks. Then God's bright glory will shine and everyone will see it. Yes. Just as God has said."
