1.
Zion, the marvelous story be telling,
The Son of the Highest, how lowly His birth!
The brightest archangel in glory excelling,
He stoops to redeem thee, He reigns upon earth.
Refrain:
Shout the glad tidings, exultingly sing,
Jerusalem triumphs, Messiah is King!
Messiah is King! Messiah is King!

2.
Tell how He cometh; from nation to nation
The heart cheering news let the earth echo round;
How free to the faithful He offers salvation,
His people with joy everlasting are crowned.
Refrain.

3.
Mortals, your homage be gratefully bringing,
And sweet let the gladsome hosannas arise;
Ye angels, the full alleluias be singing;
One chorus resound through the earth and the skies.
Refrain.

Lyrics: William Augustus Mühlenberg, 1826.
