Full Text

1 Rejoice, believer, in the Lord,
who makes your cause His own;
the hope that's built upon His Word
can ne'er be overthrown.

a Guide, a Glory, a Defense;
then what have you to fear?

5 As surely as He overcame
and triumphed once for you,
so surely you that love His name
shall in Him triumph too.
