Lyrics

Verse 1
This is the day the Lord hath made,
He calls the hours his own;
Let heaven rejoice, let earth be glad,
And praise surround his throne.

Verse 2
To-day he rose and left the dead,
And Satan’s empire fell;
To-day the saints his triumphs spread,
And all his wonders tell.

Verse 3
Hosanna to the anointed King,
To David’s holy Son!
Help us, O Lord! Descend, and bring
Salvation from thy throne.

Verse 4
Blest be the Lord, who comes to men
With messages of grace,
Who comes in God his Father’s name,
To save our sinful race.

Verse 5
Hosanna in the highest strains
The Church on earth can raise;
The highest heavens, in which he reigns,
Shall give him nobler praise.
