1 Rejoice! rejoice! for Jesus reigns,
The Prince of peace and love,
To guide the children of his grace
To heav’n, their home above.
And they who seek his loving care
Thro’ dark and sunny days,
Shall know how safely they may walk
When God directs their ways.

Rejoice! rejoice forevermore!
Immanuel’s praises sing;
They must rejoice who surely know
That Jesus is their King.

2 Rejoice! rejoice! the Christ has come,
The Saviour of mankind,
To seek the lost ones of his fold,
And heal the halt and blind.
O erring and repentant soul,
Look up and thou shalt live;
The friend of sinners comes to save,
To ransom and forgive. [Refrain]

3 Rejoice! rejoice forevermore,
Nor let one soul repine;
Tho’ friends forget, and hearts grow cold,
A Father’s love is thine.
And if the world seems dark with frowns,
Just meet them with a smile;
And, with the hope of future bliss,
All present ills beguile. [Refrain]
