1 Rejoice, believer, in the Lord,
Who makes your cause his own;
The hope that's built upon his wore

Or fainting shall not die!
Jesus, the strength of every saint,
Will aid you from on high.

4 Though sometimes unperceived by sense,
Faith sees him always near!
A guide, a glory, a defense;
Then what have you to fear?

5 As surely as he overcame.
And triumphed once for you;
So surely you that love his name,
Shall in him triumph too.
