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 Jesus, the Saviour reigns,
The God of truth and love;
When he had purged our stains
He took his seat above. (Refrain)
3 His kingdom cannot fail,
He rules o'er earth and heav'n;
The keys of death and hell
Are to our Jesus giv'n. (Refrain)
4 He sits at God's right hand
Till all his foes submit,
And bow to his command
And fall beneath his feet. (Refrain)
5 Rejoice in glorious hope!
Our Lord, the Judge, shall come,
And take his servants up
To their eternal home. (Refrain)
