Representative Text

1 Rejoice! Rejoice! Ye saints, rejoice!
Rejoice with one accord;
Rejoice with all your heart and voice,
In Christ, th'exalted Lord.

2 Rejoice! Rejoice! lift up your heads,
And praise the living God;
That for your souls the Saviour shed
His own most precious blood.

3 Rejoice! Rejoice! in His sweet name,
With all His saints above;
Our Jesus still abides the same,
And changeless in His love.

4 Rejoice! Rejoice! let praise abound
Before Jehovah's throne;
For dead ones raised, and lost ones found,
And prodigals brought home.

5 Rejoice! Rejoice! ye happy band
Of pilgrims bound for heav'n;
For mercies countless as the sand
Have to your souls been giv'n.

6 Rejoice! Rejoice! the Lord shall come,
According to His Word;
And gather all His ransomed home,
Forever with the Lord.
