Wake the song of jubilee,
Let it echo o’er the sea!
Now is come the promised hour;
Jesus reigns with sov’reign pow’r!
All ye nations join and sing,
“Christ of lords and kings is King!”
Let it sound from shore to shore,
Jesus reigns forever more.
Mourning souls dry up your tears,
Banish all your guilty fears;
See your guilt and curse remove,
Cancelled by redeeming love.
Hither then your music bring;
Strike a loud and cheerful string;
Mortals, join the host above,
Join to praise redeeming love.
