Rejoice, the Lord is King
Words & Music: Charles Wesley, 1744; Music: Darwall’s 148th, 1770.

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!

The Lord Our Savior, reigns,
The God of truth and love;
When He had purged our stains
He took His seat above;
(Repeat Chorus)

His kingdom cannot fail,
He rules o’er earth and Heav’n,
The keys of death and hell
Are to our Jesus giv’n;
(Repeat Chorus)

Rejoice in glorious hope!
Jesus the Judge shall come,
And take His servants up
To their eternal home.
(Repeat Chorus)
