258. Hosanna to the Living Lord!

1 Hosanna to the living Lord!
Hosanna to the incarnate Word!
To Christ, Creator, Savior, King.
Let earth, let heav'n hosanna sing!

Hosanna, Lord!
Hosanna in the highest!

2 "Hosanna, Lord!" your angels cry.
"Hosanna, Lord!" your saints reply.
Above, beneath us, and around,
The dead and living swell the sound: [Refrain]

3 O Savior, with protecting care
Abide in this your house of prayer,
Where we parting promise claim,
Assembled in your sacred name. [Refrain]

4 To God the Father, God the Son,
And God the Spirit, Three in One,
Be honor, praise, and glory giv'n
By all on earth and all in heav'n. [Refrain]
