James H. Burke (1855–1901)


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


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.


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


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