Joy Heather Telford

Joy to the world! The Lord is come;
Let earth receive her King;
Let every heart prepare him room,
And heaven and nature sing.

Joy Heather Telford

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.

Joy Heather Telford
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.

    Gorgeous work Heather and the beautiful foliage and the hanging bauble with the nativity is just perfect. I love the words you have used here, and it is one of my favourite carols which I have sung often. Wishing you a wonderful Christmas. x

    What a gorgeous card….but that’s certainly not at all unusual for you. I want to thank you for all the inspiration that you’ve provided over the year. I subscribe via email so frequently (to frequently, hanging head in shame) don’t take the time to come over and leave you a comment.

    I hope that you and yours had a marvelous and Merry Christmas with a joyous New Year to come.
    Thank you!
