REJOICE, O earth, the Lord is King!

To him your humble tribute bring;

Let Jacob rise, and Zion sing,

And all the world with praises ring.

O may the saints of every name

Unite to serve the bleeding Lamb!

May jars and discords cease to flame,

And all the Saviour's love proclaim.

We long to see the Christians join

In union sweet and love divine,

And glory through the churches shine,

And Gentiles crowding to the sign.

O may the distant lands rejoice,

And sinners hear the Bridegroom's voice,

While praise their happy tongues employs,

And all obtain immortal joys.

A few more days of pain and wo,

A few more sufferings here below,

And then to glory we shall go,

Where everlasting pleasures flow.

Then we shall part and weep no more

When we have met on Canaan's shore,

For Zion's warfare now is o'er;

Such shouts were never heard before.

Then tears shall all be wiped away

And Christians never go astray;

When we are freed from cumbrous clay

We'll praise the Lord in endless day.
