1 This is the day the Lord hath made;
the hours are all God's own.
Let heaven rejoice; let earth be glad,
and praise surround the throne.

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

3 Blest be the Lord, who comes in power
with messages of grace,
who comes in this accepted hour
to save our sinful race.

4 Hosanna in the highest strains
the church on earth can raise!
The highest heavens in which God reigns
shall now resound with praise.
