104. O Bride of Christ, Rejoice

1 O bride of Christ, rejoice!
Exultant raise thy voice
To hail the day of glory
Foretold in sacerd story.
Hosanna, praise, and glory,
Our King, we bow before Thee.

2 Let shouts of gladness rise
Triumphant to the skies.
Now comes the King most glorious
To reign o'er all victorious.
Hosanna, praise, and glory,
Our King, we bow before Thee.

3 He wears no kingly crown,
Yet as a King He's known;
Though not arrayed in splendor,
He still makes death surrender.
Hosanna, praise, and glory,
Our King, we bow before Thee.

4 The weak and timid find
Him gentle, good, and kind;
To them He gives a treasure
Of bliss beyond all measure.
Hosanna, praise, and glory,
Our King, we bow before Thee.

5 Thy heart now open wide,
Bid Christ with thee abide;
He graciously will hear thee,
And be forever near thee.
Hosanna, praise, and glory,
Our King, we bow before Thee.

6 Then go thy Lord to meet,
Strew palm-leaves at His feet;
Thy garments spread before Him
And honor and adore Him.
Hosanna, praise, and glory,
Our King, we bow before Thee.

7 E'en babes with one accord
With thee shall praise the Lord,
And ev'ry Gentile nation
Respond with exultation.
Hosanna, praise, and glory,
Our King, we bow before Thee.
