Rejoice and Be Happy

This song is by Violent Femmes and appears on the album Freak Magnet (2000).

Rejoice and be happy when they revile you, just like the Savior told us to do.
Rejoice and be glad when for His name's sake, they speak all manner of evil and against you they hate.

Blessed are you who are persecuted too, for righteousness and the good that you do,
If in the bread you put a little leaven, the Kingdom is yours and it's the Kingdom of Heaven.

Rejoice and be happy when they revile you, just like the Savior told us to do.
Rejoice and be glad when for His name's sake, they speak all manner of evil and against you they hate.

Ye are the salt of the earth, if you're not salty, what are you worth?

Rejoice and be ye exceedingly glad for great is the reward in Heaven to be had
For the prophets they did persecute too, unjust though it was, they came way before you.

Rejoice and be happy when they revile you, just like the Savior told us to do.
Rejoice and be glad when for His name's sake, they speak all manner of evil and against you they hate.

We are the salt of the earth, if we're not salty, what are we worth?

Rejoice and be happy when they revile you, just like the Savior told us to do.
Rejoice and be glad when for His name's sake, they speak all manner of evil and against you they hate.

Rejoice and be happy when they revile you, just like the Savior told us to do.
Rejoice and be glad when for His name's sake, they speak all manner of evil and against you they hate.
