1 Rejoice and be glad, the Redeemer has come;
Go look on his cradle, his cross, and his tomb.
Sound His praises, tell the story
Of Him who was slain;
Sound his praises, tell with gladness,
He liveth again.
Final: He cometh again.
2 Rejoice and be glad, for the Lamb that was slain,
O'er death is triumphant, and liveth again. [Chorus]
3 Rejoice and be glad, for our King is on high,
He pleadeth for us on his throne in the sky. [Chorus]
4 Rejoice and be glad, for he cometh again,
He cometh in glory, the Lamb that was slain. [Chorus]
