Repeat the sounding joy

Do you like Christmas music? What's your favorite carol?

Mine is a bit odd, since I'm not religious, but I just love the song.

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.

Favorite version? Lest you think I've totally lost it, how about Bad Religion?

Coming up: a playlist of Christmas music that doesn't suck.

The Christmas Song (chestnuts roasting on an open fire...) My ALL time favorite Christmas Song. Of course there is no version better than Nat's version.

Even though I can't stand the woman, I really like Mariah's " All I want for Christmas..." because it's so cheery and fast, and I also like "Come and hear the angels sing, etc."
Right now, my kids are really into "Silent Night" because they saw it on a tvshow they love.

I'm a sucker for Mannheim Steamroller's first Christmas album (I know, I KNOW!), and some hymns, and then Christmas Song and some others by Jethro Tull.
