Joy to the World...

To the orphan and the widow, 
Heartbroken and alone,
I pray for you the Comfort of the Christ Child,
On this beautiful Christmas morn.

To the prisoner in isolation
Deserted, all alone,
I pray the Presence of Jesus will surround you,
On this glorious Christmas morn.

To the sick, the dying,
The fearful, the afraid,
May you be able to trust in Jesus,
On this fearless Christmas morn.

To the children, the mother or the dad,
Abandoned and alone,
I pray you know His love for you,
On this loving Christmas morn.

To the sinner falling in despair,
Afraid you've gone too far,
May you know the freedom of forgiveness,
On this grace-filled Christmas morn.

To the one who stands outside the church,
Afraid to enter in,
I pray you find your Savior's love for you,
On this peace filled Christmas morn.

To the poverty stricken,
Too poor to buy a gift,
Receive the gift of Jesus,
On this extravagant Christmas morn.

To the child abused, abandoned,
Confused and all alone,
May You feel His arms around you,
On this tender Christmas morn.

To the martyrs laying down their lives today,
Suffering and alone,
May the angels welcome you to heaven,
On this glorious Christmas morn.

To the one surrounded by riches that never satisfy,
May you come to treasure riches of a very different kind.
May you find the only gift that matters,
On this priceless Christmas morn.

Joy to the World
to the Prisoner and the King.
Proclaim the glorious message
Of Jesus Christ we sing.

Joy to the World
to rich and poor alike,
Joy to the World,
Our Christ is born tonight!

Joy to the World
to everyone of us,
He came for you, for me,
He came for all of us.

Joy to the World,
the little baby Jesus
loves you, loves you, loves you!
The little baby Jesus,
Asleep on the hay.

Joy to the World
This beautiful Christmas Day,
No matter where it finds you,
He was born for you today.

Joy to the World
Let every tongue proclaim,
The riches of His love for us
This gorgeous Christmas day!

Scripture Reference: Luke 2:10 NKJV

Then the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid, for behold,
I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all the people.
For there is born to you this day, in the city of David,
a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.”


  1. Maureen , this is soooo beautiful!

  2. Thank you, Lottie! I feel heavily the heart of God for the lost, the lonely, the sick, the dying, the brokenhearted - all of the people I wrote about in this little poem. He loves us so! That's what I want to celebrate this Christmas!


How are you doing on your journey with the Lord? Started yet? Still searching. My prayer is that you will be encouraged to seek after Him with all your heart. Without a doubt, you will find Him. He is searching for YOU!
