1 Rejoice! rejoice! the great Jehovah reigns,
And sin shall lose dominion with its earthly chains;
Rejoice! rejoice! for He who came to save
Has conquered death, and rose a Victor o’er the grave.
2 Rejoice! rejoice! the Saviour came to die,
And now He intercedes for all His own on high;
Look up! look up! behold the Prince of peace,
He lives to give the burdened spirit sweet release.
3 Rejoice! rejoice! He saves in wondrous pow’r
The one who full trusts Him ev’ry day and hour;
Rejoice! rejoice! He leads them from above,
And fills them with His Spirit and His matchless love.
4 Behold! behold! for lo! the watchman cries,
“The Saviour Christ of glory comes in yonder skies,”
Rejoice! rejoice! for ransomed souls and free
Shall then be with their Saviour for eternity.
