1 Shout, for the blessed Jesus reigns;
through distant lands his triumphs spread.
And sinners, freed from endless pains,
own him their Savior and their Head.
2 He calls his chosen from afar;
they all at Zion's gates arrive.
Those who were dead in sin before
by sovereign grace are made alive.
3 Gentiles and Jews his laws obey.
Nations remote their offerings bring
and, unconstrained, their homage pay
to their exalted God and King.
4 Oh, may his holy church increase,
his Word and Spirit still prevail,
while angels celebrate his praise
and saints his growing glories hail.
5 Loud hallelujahs to the Lamb
from all below and all above!
In lofty songs exalt his name,
in songs as lasting as his love.
