Lyrics

Verse 1
Rejoice, rejoice believer,
And let thy joy and glory ever be
In Him, the Great Deliv’rer,
Who gave Himself a sacrifice for thee.

Chorus
Rejoice, O rejoice, believer,
Rejoice and sing
Of Him who lives forever,
Thy great High Priest and King.

Verse 2
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.

Verse 3
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.

Verse 4
Rejoice, rejoice believer,
Press on to join the happy, happy throng,
Where soon thy Lord will call thee
To realms of joy and everlasting song.
