Lyrics

Sing and re­joice! The Lord is come!
Oh, mes­sage glad and sweet;
Ye na­tions, bring your gifts of love
To lay at Je­sus’ feet.
Rejoice from shore to shore!
Be glad, ye sons of men!
The night of gloom is ov­er,
The King of kings shall reign!
The King of kings shall reign!
The King of kings shall reign!
The King, the King of kings shall reign.
The day of peace is nigh,
Ajar the gates of Heav’n!
Sweet hopes that ne’er shall die,
To mor­tals have been giv’n.
Rejoice, the Lord is come!
Oh, glad an­gel­ic strain,
The King of kings in right­eous­ness
Fore’er shall reign.
Rejoice from shore to shore!
Be glad, ye sons of men!
The night of gloom is ov­er,
The King of kings shall reign!
The King of kings shall reign!
The King of kings shall reign!
The King, the King of kings shall reign.
