Rejoice, rejoice, believer,
And let thy joy and glory ever be
In Him, the great Deliverer,
Who gave Himself a sacrifice for thee.

Refrain

Rejoice, believer, rejoice and sing,
Of Him who lives forever,
Thy great high priest and king.

Rejoice in thy Redeemer,
Thou hast a place that nothing can remove;
He bids thee dwell in safety,
And rest beneath the shadow of His love.

Refrain

Rejoice, rejoice, believer,
A home on high is waiting now for thee;
And there, in all His beauty,
The King of saints with wonder thou shalt see.

Refrain

Rejoice, rejoice, believer,
Press on to join the happy, happy throng;
Where soon thy Lord shall call thee
To realms of joy and everlasting song.

Refrain
