1 Ye happy sinners hear
The pris'ners of the Lord,
And wait, till Christ appear
According to his word;
Rejoice in hope, rejoice with me,
We shall from all our sins be free.

2 The Lord our righteousness,
We have long since receiv'd;
Salvation nearer is
Than when we first believ'd;
Rejoice in hope, rejoice with me,
We shall from all our sins be free.

3 In God we put our trust;
If we our sins confess,
Faithful he is and just,
From all unrighteousness
To cleanse us all, both you and me;
We shall from all our sins be free.

4 Surely in us the hope
Of glory shall appear;
Sinners, your heads lift up,
And see redemption near;
Again I say rejoice with me,
We shall from all our sins be free.

5 Who Jesu's suff'rings share,
My fellow-pri'sner now,
Ye soon the wreath shall wear
On your triumphant brow:
Rejoice in hope, rejoice with me
We shall from all our sins be free.

6 The word of God is sure,
And never can remove,
We shall in heart be pure,
And perfected in love;
Rejoice in hope, rejoice with me,
We shall from all our sins be free.

7 Then let us gladly bring
Our sacrifice of praise,
Let us give thanks and sing
And glory in his grace:
Rejoice in hope, rejoice with me,
We shall from all our sins be free.
