70. Hosanna to the Living Lord

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

2 O Savior, with protecting care,
Abide in this Thy house of prayer,
Where we Thy parting promise claim,
Assembled in Thy sacred name.

3 But, chiefest, in our cleansed breast,
Eternal, bid Thy Spirit rest
And make our secret soul to be
A temple pure and worthy Thee.

4 So in the last and dreadful Day,
When earth and heav'n shall melt away,
Thy flock, redeemed from sinful stain,
Shall swell the sound of praise again.

Amen.
