597. Rejoice, the Lord Is King

1 Rejoice, the Lord 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 Jesus the Savior reigns,
the Lord of truth and love;
when he had purged our stains
he took his seat above.
Lift up your heart, lift up your voice:
rejoice, again I say, rejoice!

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.
Lift up your heart, lift up your voice:
rejoice, again I say, rejoice!
