262. 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 stains
he took his seat above:
lift up your heart, lift up your voice!
Rejoice, again I say, rejoice!

3 His kingdom cannot fail,
he rules o'er earth and heaven;
the keys of death and hell
to Christ the Lord are given:
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!
