1 Rejoice evermore
With angels above,
In Jesus's power,
In Jesus's love;
With glad exaltation
Your triumph proclaim,
Ascribing salvation
To God, and the Lamb.

2 Thou, Lord, our relief
In trouble hast been,
Hast saved us from grief,
Hast saved us from sin,
The power of thy Spirit
Can set our hearts free:
And we shall inherit
All fulness in thee.

3 All fulness of peace,
All fulness of joy,
And spiritual bliss
That never can cloy,
To us it is given
In Jesus to know,
A kingdom of heaven,
A heaven below.

4 No longer we join
Where sinners invite,
Nor envy the swine
Their brutish delight;
Their joy is all sadness,
Their mirth is all vain,
Their laughter is madness,
Their pleasure is pain.

5 O may they at last
With sorrow return,
The pleasure to taste,
For which they were born!
Our Jesus receiving,
Our happiness prove,
The joy of believing,
The heaven of love.
