Christmas Music – Joy to the World

Hello everyone,

We are four days into December, and Christmas is only 3 weeks away. One of my favorite things about Christmas is the music. We call Christmas songs “Christmas Carols”. Whenever I hear Christmas carols it puts me in a good mood.

Everyday at the end of the school day, my class sings a song from the hymn (=songs for church) book we have. If you look at number 421, it is called もろびとこぞりて. We have the same song in English, and it is called “Joy to the World”.

Try singing the first verse (first part) to the music of number 421, and then you will know one of my favorite Christmas songs!

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


May your heart be merry during this season. One more test day to go, good luck!
