Representative Text

1 Rejoice! The Lord Jehovah reigns
In majesty on high;
The Triune God the praise demands
Of earth and sea and sky.

Refrain:
Join in the loud swelling chorus,
Join in the song victorious!
“Jesus alone reigneth o’er us,
Jesus the King of kings.”

2 The Son who once for us was slain,
Now reigns in majesty;
The glory on the cross he won,
Is his eternally. [Refrain]

3 Rejoice! That he a cross did bear,
His blood for man was shed;
Rejoice that we a cross may bear,
And follow where he led. [Refrain]

4 The Son of God enthroned on high,
The Father’s glory shares,
The Holy Spirit from his throne,
The promised comfort bears. [Refrain]
