Verse 1
Rejoice, the Lord is King
your Lord and King adore
Mortals, give thanks and sing
and triumph evermore

Lift up your heart
Lift up your voice
Rejoice, again I say, rejoice

Verse 2
Jesus, the saviour, reigns
the God of truth and love
When he had purged our stains
he took his seat above

Verse 3
His kingdom cannot fail
he rules o’er earth and heaven
The keys of death and hell
are to our Jesus given

Verse 4
He sits at God’s right hand
till all his foes submit
And bow to his command
and fall beneath his feet

Verse 5
Rejoice in glorious hope
Jesus, the judge, shall come
And take his servants up
to their eternal home

Final Chorus
We soon shall hear
the archangel’s voice
The trump of God shall sound, rejoice
