"Joy to the World"...Dixie's version

On Sunday the kids at our church will be singing 2 Christmas songs. Dixie has never performed in front of an audience, and although our church is small, I just know she'll freeze up. My girl is as shy and timid as they come (she didn't get that from me).When we got home from church this past week, I caught her singing "Joy to the World" or at least her version (combining the 2 verses below) at the top of her lungs since they had just practiced that morning. I knew I had to catch what I could on camera because I will be shocked if I see it happen on Sunday. Luckily after I snuck up on her and embarrassed her, she still did it for me again. I'm not quite sure what most of the words are that she is singing, but she has the tune down. Here are the correct words:

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.

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.

And here is my sweet girl's version. Oh the innocence of children..I love it!
