Rejoice, the Lord Is King!

 

Lyrics

  1. 1. Rejoice, the Lord is King!

    Your Lord and King adore!

    Mortals, give thanks and sing

    And triumph evermore.

  2. [Chorus]

    Lift up your heart! Lift up your voice!

    Rejoice, again I say, rejoice!

    Lift up your heart! Lift up your voice!

    Rejoice, again I say, rejoice!

  3. 2. The Lord, the Savior, reigns,

    The God of truth and love.

    When he had purged our stains,

    He took his seat above.

  4. 3. His kingdom cannot fail;

    He rules o’er earth and heav’n.

    The keys of death and hell

    To Christ the Lord are giv’n.
