O Lord God, be clothed with salvation, and let Thy saints rejoice in goodness.@2 Chronicles 6:41

James H. Evans (1785-1849).

Longwood, from The Sabbath Tune and Hymn Book (New York: Mason Brothers, 1859), page 56 (🔊 pdf nwc).

Rejoice, ye saints, rejoice and praise
The blessings of redeeming grace!
Jesus, your everlasting tower,
Stands firm against the tempter’s power.

He is a refuge ever nigh;
His love endures as mountains high;
His name’s a rock, which winds above
And waves below can never move.

While all things change, He changes not;
He ne’er forgets, though oft forgot;
His love will ever be the same;
His Word, enduring as His name.

Rejoice, ye saints, rejoice and praise
The blessings of this wondrous grace!
Jesus, your everlasting tower
Can bear, unmoved, the tempest’s power.
