Rejoice, rejoice! The Saviour comes,
The Saviour promised long:
Let ev'ry heart prepare a throne,
And ev'ry voice a song.

He comes the pris'ners to release,
in satan's bondage held;
The gates of brass before Him burst,
The iron fetters yield.

He comes the brokenheart to bind,
The bleeding soul to cure,
And with the treasures of His grace
To bless the humble poor.

Our glad hosannas, Prince of Peace,
Thy wellcome shall proclaim;
And heav'n's eternal arches ring
With Thy beloved name.
