1 Jesus shall reign—rejoice, ye nations,
Echo it through this vale of tears!
Jesus shall reign amidst His people,
Reign on the earth a thousand years.
A thousand years, O blessèd story!
Sung to the world by ancient seers;
Jesus will come in power and glory,
And He will reign a thousand years.
2 When He shall reign o’er all the kingdoms,
Hatreds and wars will be no more;
Peace will prevail, and raise her banners
Over the earth from shore to shore. [Refrain]
3 Lift up your heads, ye struggling toilers!
For your redemption draweth nigh.
Glory to God, the King is coming;
Justice shall reign beneath the sky. [Refrain]
4 ’Tis the new day whose golden twilight
Abraham was so glad to see;
’Tis the glad age when truth shall triumph;
’Tis the great Year of Jubilee! [Refrain]
