430. Rejoice, for Christ is King!

1 Rejoice, for Christ 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 Our Savior, Jesus reigns,
the God of truth and love;
when he had purged our stains,
he took his seat above: [Refrain]

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: [Refrain]

4 He sits at God's right hand
till all his foes submit
and bow to his command
and fall beneath his feet: [Refrain]
