349. Rejoice, the Lord Is King!

1 Rejoice, the Lord is King!
Your Lord and King adore!
Rejoice, give thanks and sing,
And triumph evermore.

Refrain:
Lift up your heart,
Lift up your voice!
Rejoice, again I say, rejoice!

2 The Lord, our Savior, reigns,
The God of truth and love.
When he had purged our sins,
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 Rejoice in glorious hope!
For Christ the Judge shall come
And take his servants up
To their eternal home. [Refrain]
