Earth, rejoice, our Lord is King! Sons of men, His praises sing; Sing ye in triumphant strains: Jesus our Messiah reigns! Angels and archangels join, All triumphantly combine; All in Jesus' praise agree, Carrying on His victory. Though the sons of night blaspheme, More there are with us than them: God with us, we cannot fear— Fear, ye fiends, for Christ is here! Lo! to faith's enlightened sight All the mountain flames with light: Hell is nigh, but God is nigher, Circling us with hosts of fire. Charles Wesley
Copied from my grandmother’s hymnal, Hymn Book, Methodist Episcopal Church, South: Nashville, TN, 1901, Hymn #128.
Note: The hymns in this hymnal are not titled. So when I do not know the hymn, I make up a title or simply use the first line.
