Hymn 48
10 10 11 11
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 sinners 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 the 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.
