216. Rejoice, the Lord is King

1 Rejoice, the Lord is King;
your Lord and King adore;
let all give thanks and sing,
and triumph evermore;

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

2 Jesus the Saviour 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 heaven;
the keys of death and hell
are to our Jesus given: [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]

5 Rejoice in glorious hope;
Jesus the judge shall come,
and take his servants up
to their eternal home:
We soon shall hear the archangel's voice;
the trump of God shall sound, Rejoice!
