CCXXIII. Kingdom of Christ over All

1 Rejoice, the Lord is King,
Your God and King adore;
Mortals, give thanks, and sing,
And triumph ever more!
Lift up your heart, lift up your voice,
Rejoice aloud, ye saints, rejoice.

2 Rejoice, the Saviour reigns,
The God of truth and love;
When he had purg'd our stains,
He took his seat aboveL
Lift up your heart, lift up your voice,
Rejoice aloud, ye saints, rejoice.

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:
Lift up your heart, lift up your voice,
Rejoice aloud, ye saints, rejoice.

4 He all his foes shall quell,
Shall all our sins destroy;
And ev'ry bosom swell
With pure seraphic joy:
Lift up your heart, lift up your voice,
Rejoice aloud, ye saints, rejoice.

5 Rejoice in glorious hope,
Jesus the judge shall come,
And take his servants up,
To their eternal home:
We soon shall hear th' archangel's voice,
The trump of God shall sound, rejoice.
