1 Rejoice, all people, homage give,
to God with voice of triumph sing;
he rules us in dread majesty,
the great, the universal king.
2 He puts nations under us
and makes us all triumphant stand;
he gives us for our heritage
his promised rest, a goodly land.
3 God has ascended with a shout,
Jehovah with the trumpet's sound;
sing praise to God our King, sing praise,
yes, let his glorious praise abound.
4 Our God is King of all the earth,
with thoughtful heart his praise make known,
o'er all the nations God does reign,
exalted on his holy throne.
5 To praise and serve our cov'nant God
the princes of the earth draw nigh;
all kingly pow'rs belong to him,
he is exalted, God Most High.
