1 With all your hearts rejoice,
and sing to God the Lord of all!
His mercy, like a mountain spring,
brings life to great and small.

2 A happy king who trusts in God,
his shining crown secure!
His face is bright, his prayers are heard,
his throne shall long endure.

3 Yet who, except the Lord most high,
may bear the eternal name,
or reign in unspoilt majesty
above our worldly shame?

4 The King of kings, the Christ of God,
to whom all power is given!
Rise, then, with spirit undeterred,
and join the praise of heaven!

After Psalm 21, David Mowbray (born 1938)
