1 LET all men rejoice, By Jesus restored!
We lift up our voice, And call him our Lord;
His joy is to bless us, And free us from thrall,
From all that oppress us He rescues us all.
2 Him Prophet, and King, And Priest we proclaim,
We triumph and sing Of Jesus's name;
Poor idiots he teaches To show forth his praise,
And tell of the riches Of Jesus's grace.
3 No matter how dull The scholar whom he
Takes into his school, And gives him to see;
A wonderful fashion Of teaching he hath,
And wise to salvation He makes us through faith.
4 The wayfaring men Though fools, shall not stray,
His method so plain, So easy his way;
The simplest believer His promise may prove,
And drink of the river Of Jesus's love.
5 Poor outcasts of men, Whose souls were despised,
And left with disdain, By Jesus are prized;
His gracious creation In us he makes known,
And brings us salvation, And calls us his own.
