When He had purged our stains
He took His seat above

His kingdom cannot fail
He rules o'er earth and Heav'n
The keys of death and hell
Are to our Jesus giv'n
He sits at God's right hand
Till all His foes submit
And bow to His command
And fall beneath His feet

Rejoice in glorious hope
Jesus the Judge shall come
And take His servants up
To their eternal home

We soon shall hear th'archangel's voice
The trump of God shall sound rejoice
Again I say, rejoice
Again I say rejoice
