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.
