Earth, Rejoice, Our Lord Is King!

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.
