“Rejoice in the Lord always:
and again I say, Rejoice.” Philippians 4:4

Scottish Music1. Rejoice, the Lord is King!
    Your Lord and King adore;
Mortals give thanks and sing,
    And triumph evermore;
Lift up your heart, lift up your voice;
    Rejoice, again I say, rejoice!
    Rejoice, again I say, Rejoice.

2. Jesus, the Savior, reigns,
    The God of truth and love;
When He had purged our stains
    He took His seat above;
Lift up your heart, lift up your voice;
    Rejoice, again I say, rejoice!
    Rejoice, again I say, rejoice!

3. His kingdom cannot fail,
    He rules o’er earth and Heav’n,
The keys of death and hell
    Are to our Jesus giv’n;
Lift up your heart, lift up your voice;
    Rejoice, again I say, rejoice!
    Rejoice, again I say, rejoice!

4. He sits at God’s right hand
    Till all His foes submit,
And bow to His command,
    And fall beneath His feet:
Lift up your heart, lift up your voice;
    Rejoice, again I say, rejoice!
    Rejoice, again I say, rejoice!

5. He all His foes shall quell,
    Shall all our sins destroy,
And every bosom swell
    With pure seraphic joy;
Lift up your heart, lift up your voice,
    Rejoice, again I say, rejoice!
    Rejoice, again I say, rejoice!

6. Rejoice in glorious hope!
    Jesus the Judge shall come,
And take His servants up
    To their eternal home.
We soon shall hear th’archangel’s voice;
    The trump of God shall sound, rejoice!
    The trump of God shall sound, rejoice!
