John F. Kinsey (1852–1908)


Rejoice, the King is ris­en,
He lives to­day on high;
The grave no more a pri­son,
But the door­way to the sky.


Rejoice, re­joice,
Our prais­es we will sing;
Rejoice, re­joice,
In Christ the ris­en King.

The ris­en King stands long­ing
To meet us at God’s throne;
To Him we may go throng­ing,
Since an­gels moved the stone.


Dear Je­sus, we are com­ing
Along the nar­row way;
We’ll meet you in the morn­ing
Of the resur­rect­ion day.
