1. Rejoice, the Lord is King! Your Lord and King adore; Rejoice, give thanks and sing, and triumph evermore; Lift up your heart, lift up your voice; Rejoice, again I say, rejoice!
2. Jesus, the Savior, reigns, the God of truth and love; When He had purged our stains He took His seat above; Lift up your heart, lift up your voice; Rejoice, again I say, rejoice!
3. His kingdom cannot fail, He rules o’er earth and Heav’n, The keys of death and hell are to our Jesus giv’n; Lift up your heart, lift up your voice; Rejoice, again I say, rejoice!
4. He sits at God’s right hand till all His foes submit, And bow to His command, and fall beneath His feet: Lift up your heart, lift up your voice; Rejoice, again I say, rejoice!
5. He all His foes shall quell, shall all our sins destroy, And every bosom swell with pure seraphic joy; Lift up your heart, lift up your voice, Rejoice, again I say, rejoice!
6. Rejoice in glorious hope! Our Lord the Judge shall come, And take His servants up to their eternal home. Lift up your heart, lift up your voice; Rejoice, again I say, rejoice!
