“I am telling you this so no one will deceive you with well-crafted arguments. For though I am far away from you, my heart is with you. And I rejoice that you are living as you should and that your faith in Christ is strong. And now, just as you accepted Christ Jesus as your Lord, you must continue to follow him. Let your roots grow down into him, and let your lives be built on him. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness. Don’t let anyone capture you with empty philosophies and high-sounding nonsense that come from human thinking and from the spiritual powers of this world, rather than from Christ. For in Christ lives all the fullness of God in a human body. So you also are complete through your union with Christ, who is the head over every ruler and authority.”

—Colossians 2: 4–9

SONG #486 Be Glad in the Lord and Rejoice

1. Be glad in the Lord and rejoice, All ye that are upright in heart; And ye that have made him your choice, Bid sadness and sorrow depart.

Chorus Rejoice, rejoice! Be glad in the Lord and rejoice! Rejoice, rejoice! Be glad in the Lord and rejoice!

2. What though in the conflict for right Your enemies almost prevail, God’s armies, just hid from your sight, Are more than the foes which assail.

3. Though darkness surround you by day, Your sky by the night be o’ercast, Let nothing your spirit dismay, But trust till the danger is past.

4. Be glad in the Lord and rejoice, His praises proclaiming in song; Acclaim him with trumpet and voice, The loud hallelujahs prolong.

Mary Elizabeth Servoss (b 1849)
