Joy! Joy! Joy to the world. Joy! Joy! Joy to the world. Joy to the world, the Christ is born! Joy! Joy to the world. Let earth receive the love! Let evíry heart prepare him room And heavín and nature sing, And heavín and nature sing, And heavín and heaven and nature sing.

Joy! Joy! Joy to the world. Joy! Joy! Joy to the world. Love rules the world with Truth and Grace! Joy, Joy to the world. Let all the nations prove The glories of Godís righteousness, And wonders of his love, And wonders of his love, And wonders, wonders of his Love.

Silent night, Holy night. All is calm All is bright.

Maryís little baby, Bringing the peace and joy to earth. Maryís little baby, Bringing the love down from heaven. Maryís little baby, Sweet, holy baby. Maryís little baby, Child of Godís own joy!

Joy to the world. Joy! Joy! Joy to the world. Joy to the world. Love will reign Let evíryone sing with Joy! Joy! Joy to the world.

Joy! Joy! Joy! to the world. Let fields and rivers, Rocks, hills and plains Repeat the sounding joy, Repeat the sounding joy. Repeat, repeat the sound of joy, Let heaven and nature sing, Let earth receive her king. The wonders of the love and joy Sing joy, sing joy, sing joy!
