VERSE 1:
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!

VERSE 2:
Our Savior, Jesus, reigns, the God of truth and love;
When He has purged our stains, He took his seat above;
Lift up your heart, Lift up your voice!
Rejoice, again I say, rejoice!

Verse 3:
His kingdom cannot fail, He rules o'er earth and heav'n;
The keys of death and hell are to our Jesus giv'n:
Lift up your heart, Lift up your voice!
Rejoice, again I say, rejoice!

VERSE 4:
Rejoice in glorious hope, for Christ the judge shall come
To gather all of His saints to their eternal home:
Lift up your heart, Lift up your voice!
Rejoice, again I say, rejoice!
