Isaac Watts wrote "Joy to the World" not as a Christmas hymn, but as part of his effort to Christianize the Psalms. As he reflected on Psalm 98, he was inspired to write these words which are more about Christ's second coming than His first one."
As we begin this Advent season, a time of meditation and reflection on the incarnation of the Christ Child, let this hymn rekindle in you awe and adoration of the King of Kings.
Every Sunday, around 2:15 CST, a Moody radio station near you may feature our weekly hymn lessons. A 5 minute spot is used to highlight our hymn of the week.
