Hymn/Song Information

Sinners rejoice your peace is made




Sinners, rejoice: your peace is made;
Your Savior on the cross hath bled:
Your God, in Jesus reconciled,
On all His works again hath smiled;
Hath grace through Him
and blessing givín,
To all in earth and all in Heavín.


Angels rejoice in Jesusí grace,
And vie with manís
more favored race;
The blood that did for us atone,
Conferred on them
some gift unknown;
Their joy through
Jesusí pains abounds,
They triumph by
His glorious wounds.


Or, stablished and
confirmed by Him
Who did our lower world redeem,
Secure they keep their blest estate,
Firm on an everlasting seat;
Or, raised above themselves, aspire,
In bliss improved, in glory higher.


Him they beheld,
our conquering God,
Returned with garments
rolled in blood!
They saw, and kindled at the sight,
And filled with shouts
the realms of light;
With loudest hallelujahs met,
And fell, and kissed His bleeding feet.


They saw Him in the courts above.
With all His recent prints of love;
The wounds, the blood!
they heard its voice,
That heightened all their highest joys;
They felt it sprinkled
through the skies,
And shared that better sacrifice.


Not angel tongues can eíer express
The unutterable happiness;
Nor human hearts can eíer conceive
The bliss wherein
through Christ they live,
But all your Heavín,
ye glorious powers,
And all your God, is doubly ours!
