Rejoice! The time is near
When we honor the birth of One most dear.
Rejoice! He came to be
The Savior of all, even you and me.
Rejoice! Hold up your head!
The Son of God came to a manger bed.
Rejoice! For He is true!
He atoned for the sins of me and you.
Rejoice! For He still lives!
Forgiveness and help are the things He gives.
Rejoice! His love is sure.
With His love in our hearts we can endure.
He takes despair and gives us peace,
From sins tight chains He gives release,
When sorrow binds, He comfort brings
He gives us every joyful thing.
Rejoice! Rejoice! He is our King!
