Rejoice, believer, in the Lord,
Again, I say, Rejoice!
Rejoice to know that Christ is Lord,
Rejoice in all He does.
Though sin may cause your heart to sigh,
Rejoice in Christ's shed blood:
He died that you might never die,
Redeemed you by His blood.
Our joy is not in earthly things,
In things that time may change:
Our joy is in our God and King,
In Him who stays the same.
Always, and in all things, I say,
Children of God, Rejoice!
In everything God has His way:
Rejoice! Rejoice! Rejoice!
(Tune: O for Thousand Tongues)
