Rejoice

Rejoice with exceedingly great joy!
Emmanuel shall come.
And these afflictions will be seen
for what they are;
light and momentary.
Blessings to make us fit
For our new home.

Rejoice with exceedingly great joy!
For to you is born
A Boy.
He shall rule His people
From their heart.
With His Holy Spirit
Sealed up tight-
He will never depart.

Rejoice with exceedingly great joy!
Emmanuel shall come to thee.
To thee–He shall come,
Guide, Shepherd, Ruler,
Teacher, Friend,
Holy One
He shall come to thee.

Rejoice! Rejoice! Rejoice!
He has come to thee!
Fall down before Him,
Lift your face to Him, 
His Light, His Life
Shines on you.

Rejoice! Rejoice! Rejoice!
In your afflictions,
Emmanuel-God with us-
Has come to thee.
Rejoice!
