Let the children of God rejoice,
both now and forevermore!
Let them sing songs of praise,
for He has given us life everlasting,
and laid up for us treasure in Heaven.
Blessed are those who are called
to the marriage supper of the Lamb!
The Lord is good, gracious and pure,
crowned with beauty and worthy of praise.
He is near to those who call on Him,
with tender compassion He hears their prayer.
Let those who trust in Christ rejoice,
both now and forevermore!
