Representative Text

1 Rise in your might, ye ransomed ones, arise;
Jesus shall reign, the King of earth and skies;
Shout ye his praises, exalt him and sing;
Let all creation proclaim him the King.

Jesus is King, Jesus is King;
Sing and rejoice, ye ransomed sinners;
Shout till earth in triumph shall ring,
Jesus is King, Jesus is King;
Come and adore him, bow before him;
Shout and sing, Jesus is King.

2 Gird on your swords, his righteous cause defend;
Vanquish the foes against it who contend;
He will uphold you while heaven shall stand,
By his eternal, omnipotent hand. [Refrain]

3 Stand firm and true, his kingdom must increase,
Soon o'er his realms the King shall reign in peace;
Then every nation before him shall fall,
Glad to proclaim him the King over all. [Refrain]

4 When he shall come to gather up his own,
Ye shall sit down with him upon the throne;
Then shall the ransomed triumphantly sing,
Glory and honor to Jesus the King. [Refrain]
