Lyrics from A Collection of Sacred Hymns, for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, 1841

Hymn 114
1. Jehovah reigns! O glorious King!
Let all the saints of God
Lift up their hearts—rejoice and sing
And sound his praise abroad.

2. Rise from the tombs, O leave the dust,
And lay your sackcloth by;
For Jesus Christ, in whom we trust
Arose and reigns on high.

3. Then let your confidence be strong—
Let men and angels know,
That God the glory of our song,
Is with the saints below.

4. Let sinners be constrained to say,
The peace and heavenly joy,
These Christians feel from day to day,
No trouble can destroy.

5. Then hand in hand, both old and young
Each heart with heart shall blend
To walk the road—to raise the song,
Till hope in glory end.

6. With Zion's city full in view—
That better land of rest;
Our sorrow's o'er—our journey thro',
And we forever blest.

7. Then truth and grace will swell the song;
From every bondage free:
We'll join the holy, blood washed throng,
And reign eternally.
