Let Earth receive her King!

The famous hymn, “Joy to the World” by Isaac Watts, based on Psalm 98, inspired my painting of our Lord’s birth. The explosion of color in nature depicts the earth’s joyful response to her creator King. On that historic night, heaven and nature sang. The fields, floods, rocks, hills and plains repeated the sounding joy.....and one day He will come again and the entire world will bow a knee and claim Jesus as Lord!
