179. Rejoice, the Lord is King

1 Rejoice, the Lord is King!
Your Lord and King adore;
Rejoice, give thanks, and sing,
And triumph evermore:

Refrain:
Lift up your heart, lift up your voice;
Rejoice, again I say, rejoice!

2 Our Savior Jesus reigns,
The God of truth and love;
When he had purged our stains,
He took his seat above: [Refrain]

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: [Refrain]

4 He sits at God's right hand
Till all his foes submit
And bow to his command
And fall beneath his feet: [Refrain]
