1.	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 Savior reigns, 
	the God of truth and love; 
	when he had purged our stains, 
	he took his seat above. 
	Lift up your heart, 
	lift up your voice; rejoice, 
	again I say, rejoice. 

3.	His kingdom cannot fail; 
	he rules o'er earth and heaven; 
	the keys of earth and hell 
	are to our Jesus given. 
	Lift up your heart, 
	lift up your voice; rejoice, 
	again I say, rejoice. 

4.	Rejoice in glorious hope! 
	Jesus the Judge shall come, 
	and take his servants up 
	to their eternal home. 
	We soon shall hear 
	th'archangel's voice; the trump of God 
	shall sound, rejoice!
