As of the late 20th century, "Joy to the World" was the most-published Christmas hymn in North America. The words of the hymn are by English writer Isaac Wattsbased on Psalm 98—12 and Genesis — The song was first published in in Watts' collection The Psalms of David: Imitated in the language of the New Testament, and applied to the Sepanjang Jalan Kenangan - Tetty Kadi - Album Emas Tetty Kadi state and worship.
The paraphrase is Watts' Christological interpretation. Consequently, he does not emphasize with equal weight the various themes of Psalm In first and second stanzas, Watts writes Watching The Girl - The Gandharvas - Sold For A Smile heaven and earth rejoicing at the coming of the King.
An interlude We Three Kings - Jorge Argelagos & Bryan Guthrie - Joy To The World depends more on Watts' interpretation than the psalm text, stanza three speaks of Christ's blessings extending victoriously over the realm of sin.
The cheerful repetition of the non-psalm phrase "far as the curse is found" has caused this stanza to be omitted from some hymnals.
But the line makes joyful sense when understood from the New Testament eyes through which Watts interprets the psalm. This Is The Sound - Various - Bedroom Ambience 3 four celebrates Christ's rule over the nations. Watts' preface says the verses " Mason was by that time an accomplished and well-known composer and arranger, having composed tunes such as "Bethany", which was used for the hymn Nearer My God to Thee.
Mason's publication of the current tune was the fourth version to have been We Three Kings - Jorge Argelagos & Bryan Guthrie - Joy To The World. The first, published in his book Occasional Psalm and Hymn Tunesfeatured the present day tune in a different arrangement with the present-day lyrics; the first such publication to do so. The name of this tune was given as "Antioch", and was attributed as being "From Handel ". It was also titled "Antioch" and attributed to Handel.
Musically, the first four notes of "Joy to the Marvin Gaye & Kim Weston - Take Two are the same as the first four in the chorus " Lift up your heads " from Handel's Messiah premieredand, in the third line, the same as found in another Messiah piece: the arioso" Comfort ye ".
Consequently, and with Mason's attribution to Handel, there has long been speculation over how much a part Handel's Messiah had in "Joy to the World". Moreover, several tunes have been found from the early s closely resembling that of "Antioch", the earliest of which was published in under the title "Comfort" possibly as a nod to Handel's "Comfort ye".
Other publications from the early s further suggest the tune may have been around for some time before Mason published his arrangement. Thomas Hawkes published the "Comfort" tune in in his Collection of Tunes.
In it, the attribution was given simply as "Author Unknown", suggesting it may have been older. A version by the Trinity Choir was very popular in Second Part. Let earth receive We Three Kings - Jorge Argelagos & Bryan Guthrie - Joy To The World King!
Let ev'ry heart prepare Him room, And Heaven and nature sing. Joy to the earth, the Savior reigns!
