Be glad in the Lord, and rejoice

 

Be glad in the Lord, and rejoice,
All ye that are upright in heart;
And ye that have made Him your choice,
Bid sadness and sorrow depart.


Refrain:
Rejoice, rejoice,
Be glad in the Lord and rejoice;
Rejoice, rejoice,
Be glad in the Lord and rejoice.

 

Be joyful, for He is the Lord

On earth and in Heaven supreme;
He fashions and rules by His word—
The “Mighty” and “Strong” to redeem.

 


What though in the conflict for right

Your enemies almost prevail?
God’s armies, just hid from your sight,
Are more than the foes which assail.

 


Though darkness surround you by day,

Your sky by the night be o’ercast,
Let nothing your spirit dismay,
But trust till the danger is past.

 


Be glad in the Lord, and rejoice,
His praises proclaiming in song;
Let gratefulness give all a voice,
The loud hallelujahs prolong!
