Rejoice, the Lord Is King
By: Charles Wesley

Rejoice, the Lord is King!
Your Lord and King adore;
Rejoice, give thanks, and sing,
And triumph evermore:
Lift up your heart, lift up your voice;
Rejoice; again I say, Rejoice!

Our Savior Jesus 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!

His Kingdom cannot fail;
He rules over earth and heaven;
The keys of death and hell
Are to our Jesus given:
Lift up your heart, lift up your voice;
Rejoice; again I say, Rejoice!

He sits at God’s right hand
Till all his foes submit
And bow to his command
And fall beneath his feet:
Lift up your heart, lift up your voice;
Rejoice; again I say, Rejoice!
