373. This Is the Day the Lord Hath Made

1 This is the day the Lord hath made,
its hours to God are known;
let heaven rejoice, let earth be glad,
and praise surround the throne.

2 Today Christ rose and left the dead,
and Satan's empire fell;
today the saints his triumph spread,
and all his wonders tell.

3 Hosanna to the anointed King,
to David's holy Son!
Help us, O Lord; descend and bring
salvation from thy throne.

4 Hosanna in the highest strains
the church on earth can raise;
the highest heavens in which he reigns
shall give him nobler praise.
