To be Sung in a Tumult

Earth, rejoice; the Lord is King!

Sons of men, His praises sing;

Sing ye in triumphant strains,

Jesus our Messiah reigns!

Power is all to Jesus given,

Lord of hell, and earth, and heaven,

Every knee to Him shall bow:—

Satan, hear, and tremble now!

Roaring lion, own His power:

Us thou never canst devour;

Pluck’d we are out of thy teeth,

Saved by Christ from hell and death.

Though thou bruise in us His heel,

Sorer vengeance shalt thou feel:

Christ, the woman’s conquering Seed,

Christ in us shall bruise thy head.

Though the floods lift up their voice.

Calm we hear thy children’s noise;

Horribly they rage in vain;

God is mightier than man.

Jesus greater we proclaim,

Him in us, than thee in them:

Thee their god He overpowers;

Thou art theirs, and Christ is ours.

Strong in Christ, we thee defy,

Dare thee all thy force to try;

Work in them, the slaves of sin,

Stir up all thy hell within;

All Thy hosts to battle bring:

Shouts in us a stronger King,

Lifts our hearts and voices high:—

Hark, the morning stars reply!

Angels and archangels join,

All triumphantly combine,

All in Jesu’s 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 enlighten’d sight

All the mountain flames with light!

Hell is nigh, but God is nigher,

Circling us with hosts of fire.

Our Messias is come down,

Points us to the victor’s crown,

Bids us take our seats above,

More than conquerors in His love.

Yes; the future work is done,

Christ the Saviour reigns alone,

Forces Satan to submit,

Bruises him beneath our feet.

We the evil angels doom,

Antedate the joys to come,

See the dear Redeemer’s face,

Saved, already saved by grace!
