1 Rejoice, ye saints, rejoice and praise
The blessings of redeeming grace!
Jesus, your everlasting tower,
Stands firm against the tempter’s power.

2 He is a refuge ever nigh;
His love endures as mountains high;
His name’s a rock, which winds above
And waves below can never move.

3 While all things change, He changes not;
He ne’er forgets, though oft forgot;
His love will ever be the same;
His Word, enduring as His name.

4 Rejoice, ye saints, rejoice and praise
The blessings of this wondrous grace!
Jesus, your everlasting tower
Can bear, unmoved, the tempest’s power.
