There's only one ska chord in this song and it is D


There are 3 power chords

intro: D (power Chord)

D (ska)
Joy to The world! the Lord has come:

Let earth receive her King.

D(Power Chord)
Let ev'ry heart prepare him room,

D(Palm muted)
And heav'n and nature sing,

A(Palm Muted)
And heav'n and nature sing,

G              A    D
And heav'n and nature sing,

D (ska) 
Joy to the world! the Savior reigns

Let men their songs employ,

D(Power Chord)     
While fields and floods, rocks, hills and plains,

D(Palm Muted)            
Repeat the sounding joy, 

A(Palm Muted) 
Repeat the sounding joy,

G          A   D  
Repeat the sounding joy.

After this verse, there's an instrumental part

D(ska chord) 
D(power chord)
When the drums go away..
Palm Muted:
D(power chord)
A(power chord) 

He rules the world with truth and grace,

And makes the nations prove 

D(Power Chord)
The glories of His righteousness,

D(Palm Muted) 
And wonders of His love, 

A(Palm Muted)
And wonders of His love, 

G           A  D
And wonders of His love

G           A  D
And wonders of His love

G           A  D
And wonders of His love

The song ends here and then has a little encore at the end. The guitar
just plays a D ska chord the whole time. Any corrections? Email me.

Hey, just to let you know, the last chunk of the song after the insturment break is in the Key of E instead of D, so raise all those notes up a whole step,

D = E
A = B
G = A
