LYRICS:
1. Joy to the world, the Lord is come!
Let earth receive its king;
let ev’ry heart prepare him room,
and heav’n and nature sing,
and heav’n and nature sing,
and heav’n, and heav’n and nature sing.

2. Joy to the earth, the Savior reigns!
Let all their songs employ
while fields and floods, rocks, hills, and plains,
repeat the sounding joy,
repeat the sounding joy,
repeat, repeat the sounding joy.

3. No more let sins and sorrows grow,
nor thorns infest the ground.
He comes to make his blessings flow
far as the curse is found,
far as the curse is found,
far as, far as the curse is found.

4. He rules the world with truth and grace,
and makes the nations prove
the glories of his righteousness,
and wonders of his love,
and wonders of his love,
and wonders, wonders of his love.

When choosing parts, remember that part 1 will normally contain the melody. For the harmony to be complete, you should also have at least one player on each of the parts, UNLESS you have chosen to include a keyboard instrument, which will contain the complete harmony. So possible combinations may be:

1. Solo instrument (part 1) + keyboard.
2. Solo instrument (part 1) + second player (either part 2, 3 or 4) + keyboard.
3. Instruments on all four parts (no keyboard).
4. Instruments on all four parts + keyboard.

Remember, you can build out very large combinations by doubling parts. For example, a symphony orchestra would look something like this:

Part 1: flute, oboe, clarinet, trumpet, violin.
Part 2: flute, oboe, clarinet, trumpet, violin.
Part 3: clarinet, bassoon, horn, trombone, viola.
Part 4: bassoon, bass clarinet, trombone, tuba, cello, double bass.
