Representative Text

1 Sing and rejoice! The Lord is come!
Oh, message glad and sweet;
Ye nations bring your gifts of love
To lay at Jesus’ feet.

Refrain:
Rejoice from shore to shore!
Be glad ye sons of men!
The night of gloom is o’er,
The King of kings shall reign!
The King of kings shall reign!
The King of kings shall reign!
The King, the King of kings shall reign!

2 The day of peace is nigh,
Ajar the gates of heav’n!
Sweet hopes that ne’er shall die,
To mortals have been giv’n.
Rejoice, the Lord is come!
Oh, glad angelic strain,
The King of kings in righteousness
For e’er shall reign. [Refrain]
