487. Rejoice, the Lord Is King

1 Rejoice, the Lord is King!
Your Lord and King adore!
Rejoice, give thanks, and sing,
And triumph evermore:
Lift up your heart,
lift up your voice!
Rejoice! again I say, rejoice!

2 The Lord the Savior reigns,
The God of truth and love:
When he had purged our sins,
He took his seat above:
Lift up your heart,
lift up your voice!
Rejoice! again I say, rejoice!

3 God's kingdom cannot fail,
He rules o’er earth and heav'n;
The keys of death and hell
Are to our Jesus giv'n:
Lift up your heart,
lift up your voice!
Rejoice! again I say, rejoice!

4 Rejoice in glorious hope!
Our Lord the judge shall come
And take his servants up
To their eternal home:
Lift up your heart,
lift up your voice!
Rejoice! again I say, rejoice!
