Rejoice! ye saints, again rejoice,
And sing, with one accord;
Rejoice with all your heart and voice,
In Christ your risen Lord.

Refrain

Rejoice (in the Lord), rejoice in the Lord
Rejoice in the Lord alway;
Rejoice (in the Lord), rejoice in the Lord,
And again I say, rejoice.

Rejoice! rejoice! lift up your head,
And praise the living God;
That for your souls the Savior shed
His own most precious blood.

Refrain

Rejoice! rejoice! let praise abound
Before Jehovah’s throne;
For dead ones raised, and lost ones found,
And prodigals brought home.

Refrain

Rejoice! rejoice! the Lord will come,
According to His word,
And gather all His ransomed home,
Forever with the Lord.
