Description

A festive, triumphant traditional hymn set for four voices and organ (or piano).

Lyrics

Verse 1:
Rejoice, O earth, the land and sea!
Though once you groaned to be set free,
The Lord has heard your sigh and plea
And soon his reign each eye shall see.

Verse 2:
Rejoice, O sinner; lift your head!
Though once your stains were crimson red,
The Lord has suffered in your stead
And lives to raise you from the dead.

Chorus:
Let all (let all) the earth (the earth) lift up its voice
Let all, (let all) let all the earth rejoice!

Verse 3:
Rejoice, O nations, far and wide!
Though once a people cast aside,
The Lord has dressed you as his bride
And no good gift shall be denied!

Verse 4:
Rejoice, O church, and raise your song!
Though now you mourn and cry, “How long?”
The Lord is filled with grace prolonged
And gathers patiently his throng.
