The great Deliv’rer long foretold
In ages past by seers of old
Has come the captive to set free,
And bring the glo­ri­ous jubilee.


Rejoice, rejoice,
Behold the promised Sav­ior;
Rejoice, rejoice,
The Prince of Peace has come.

He comes the sinner to redeem,
And rescue from the power of sin;
He comes the lost to seek and save,
He comes to triumph o’er the grave.


O Zion! lift thy raptured eye,
The long expected hour is nigh;
The joys of nature rise again,
The Prince of Salem comes to reign.
