1Rejoice, 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.
2Jesus, 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.
3His kingdom cannot fail;
He rules o’er earth and heaven;
The keys of death and hell
Are to our Jesus given.
Lift up your heart, lift up your voice;
Rejoice, again I say, rejoice.
4He 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. Amen.
