I remember the first verse:
Jeremiah was a prophet, Moses was a prophet too. Jesus Christ was the Son of God and man His love shines down on you. Yes His love shines down on you. Singing Joy to the World, All the boys and girls, Joy to children of Galilee, Joy to you and me.
If I find the other verses, I'll let you know.

There WAS another version. It can be found in Intervarsity praise books from the seventies. You had the lyrics right for that version:
" Jeremiah was a prophet, Moses was one too..."
In the early seventies, a group of students from Intervarsity in Superior, Wis. got together and recorded an album. They called themselves "The Lost and Found," and the album was titled "The Son of God." On this album is a song titled "I Can See Clearly," which all of us should be familiar with if we grew up in the sixties/seventies, or listen to oldies radio. This song, on this album, is actually a medley, alternating verses and choruses from "I Can See Clearly," and the Christian version of Three Dog Night's hit "Joy to the World."
This album was released in a small quantity, and was not deemed good enough at the time to go commercial. It will be very hard to find.
There was also a Christian version of "Some Kind of Wonderful" released in '89, but I don't remember who did it.

The second verse was "If you're out on the highway ,have no where to hide ,the keys are in the Kingdom and we're all welcome inside. I said we're all welcome inside.
(These were the original lyrics that Hoyt Axton wrote for Joy To The world but the record company didn't like them so he changed them and 3 Dog Night recorded the better known version)

In the 90's, we sang a different version at VBS. Though I can't recall the whole thing, the first two lines were "Jeremiah was a prophet. A spokesman for the Lord."

1. Jeremiah was a prophet
Moses was a prophet too
Jesus was the Son of God and of man
And his love shines down on you
Yeah his love shines down on you
Si-ing joy to the world
All the boys and girls
Joy to the children of Galilee
Joy to you and me
2. The reason to become a Christian
Is just as plain as day
The sermon on the mount
Was made to show the way
It was made to show the way
3. Lost out on life’s highway
There ain’t no place to hide
The keys are in the Kingdom
And we’re all welcome inside
Yeah we’re all welcome inside
