Jeremy Camp, “Joy to the World”

Contemporary Christian star Jeremy Camp has released God With Us, his latest Christmas CD, with Joy to the World as the single to Christian Top 40. It is the second most-added song at radio this week, no surprise, became Camp has always consistently performed well there, and his version is certainly unique.

Camp’s take on Joy to the World is both dramatic and exciting. He introduces several new verses, including a Hallelujah chorus and a bridge taken virtually directly from scripture. No surprise that radio is warming up to this, because in the hustle and bustle of Christmastime, it’s good to be reminded about the birth of our Savior from a Biblical perspective. A quality version of Joy to the World, this one from Mr. Camp.

JOY TO THE WORLD Lyrics
Jeremy Camp

Joy to the world
The Lord is come
Let earth receive her King
Let every heart prepare Him room
And heaven and nature sing
And heaven and nature sing
And heaven and nature sing

Joy to the world
The Savior reigns
Let me their songs employ
While fields and floods
Rocks hills and plains repeat the sounding joy
Repeat the sounding joy
Repeat, repeat the sounding joy

Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Christ is born

Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Christ is born

For unto us a child is born
Unto us a Son is given
And He will be called
Wonderful Counselor
The mighty God
The everlasting Father
The Prince of Peace, yeah

And the weight of the world is on His shoulders
And His Kingdom will never end
And the weight of the world is on His shoulders
And His Kingdom will never end

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 of His love

Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Christ is born

Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Christ is born
