    REJOICE! the Lord is King:
    Your Lord and King adore;
    Mortals, give thanks and sing,
        And triumph evermore:
 
Lift up your heart, lift up your voice:
Rejoice; again I say, rejoice.
 
2      Jesus the Saviour reigns,
        The God of Truth and love;
    When He had purged our stains,
        He took His seat above:
 
3      His kingdom cannot fail:
        He rules oer earth and Heaven;
    The keys of death and hell
        Are to our Jesus given:
 
4      He sits at Gods right hand,
        Till all His foes submit,
    And bow to His command,
        And fall before His feet:
 
5      Rejoice in glorious hope:
        Jesus, the Judge, shall come,
    And take His servants up
        To their eternal home:
 
Charles Wesley, 1707-88
