    Verse 1
    Rejoice, for Jesus reigns
    Enthroned in human hearts;
    He breaks the prison chains
    And makes them free indeed;
    The devil might God's child oppose
    No fear of foe, God's word goes on

    Verse 2
    The work of righteousness,
    Tidings of truth and peace;
    For comfort in our life
    Shall spread all round about;
    Gentiles and Jews shall all bow down
    And will worship acceptably

    Verse 3
    There's power with Thee for the
    Protection of Thine own;
    And to Thy high decree
    Shall millions take heed to;
    The heav'ns rejoice to see Thy work
    The islands far hear Thy command

    Verse 4
    This perfect heav'nly seed
    Shall grow to a big tree;
    Like the blessed leaven
    Shall spread all o'er the earth;
    Till God the Son comes back again
    It will go on, Amen, Amen
