Rejoicing in Christ.
Rejoice and be glad the Redeemer has come!
Go look on his cradle, his cross and his tomb.
Cho. -- Sound his praises, tell the story,
Of him who was slain,
Sound his praises, tell with gladness,
He liveth again.
2 Rejoice and be glad: for the blood has been shed; Redemption is finished, the price has been paid.
3 Rejoice and be glad: for the Lamb that was slain, O'er death is triumphant, and liveth again.
4 Rejoice and be glad: for our King is on high;
He pleadeth for us on his throne in the sky.
5 Rejoice and be glad: for he cometh again --
He cometh in glory, the Lamb that was slain.
H. Bonar, 1874.
