Only Jesus Can

Jesus sees those we treat invisible,
He hears all silent cries;
Reaches out to the untouchable,
Heals the deepest wounds.

He rebuilds derailed lives.
He values the unworthy,
Smiles upon the least and lowest,
Lights up the darkest corners,
A shining beacon of certain hope.

My Favourite Christmas Carols #3 – ‘Joy to the World’

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 Heaven, and nature sing.

Joy to the world, the Savior reigns!
Let men their songs employ;
While fields and floods, rocks, hills and plains
Repeat the sounding joy,
Repeat the sounding joy,
Repeat, repeat, the sounding joy.

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.

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.
