Rejoice, Believer, in the Lord
Rejoice, believer, in the Lord,
who makes your cause His own;
the hope that’s built upon His Word
can ne’er be overthrown.
Though many foes beset your road,
and feeble is your arm,
your life is hid with Christ in God
beyond the reach of harm.
Weak as you are, you shall not faint
or fainting, shall not die!
Jesus, the strength of ev’ry saint,
will aid you from on high.
Though sometimes unperceived by sense,
faith sees Him always near!
a Guide, a Glory, a Defense;
then what have you to fear?
As surely as He overcame
and triumphed once for you,
so surely you that love His name
shall in Him triumph too.

The current hymnal for this series is Hymns to the Living God, published by Religious Affections Ministries. This is such a good hymnal that I’m pretty sure I could happily post every hymn it contains, but I’ll be limiting selections to hymns I have never posted here before, especially those unfamiliar to me (of which there are many). For more information and to purchase this hymnal, visit Religious Affections Ministries.
