Representative Text

1 Rejoice, and hail the King,
Your sov’reign Lord adore;
Exalt His name, and sing
His praises evermore.

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

2 From Him no word can fail,
All pow’r to Him is giv’n;
His kingdom will prevail,
And fill the earth and heav’n. [Refrain]

3 We now await the day
When Christ our Lord shall come,
To drive the clouds away,
And take His lov’d ones home. [Refrain]
