1 Rejoice, the Saviour reigns
Among the sons of men;
He breaks the pris'ners chains,
And makes them free again:
Let hell oppose God's only Son,
In spite of foes his cause goes on.

2 The baffled prince of hell
In vain new projects tries,
The gospel to repel,
By cruelties and lies:
Th'infernal gates shall rage in vain;
Conquest awaits the Lamb once slain.

3 He died, but soon arose
Triumphant o'er the grave:
And now himself he shows
Omnipotent to save:
Let rebels kiss the victor's feet;
Eternal bliss his subjects meet.

4 All pow'r is in his hand,
His people to defend;
To his most high command
Shall millions more attend:
All heaven with smiles approve his cause;
And distant isles receive his laws.

5 This little seed from heaven
Shall soon become a tree;
This ever blessed leaven
Diffus'd abroad must be;
Till God the Son shall come again,
It must go on. Amen, amen!
