335. O Bride of Christ, Rejoice

1 O bride of Christ, rejoice;
Exultant raise thy voice
To hail the day of glory
Foretold in sacred 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. [Refrain]

3 A humble beast He rides,
Yet as a King presides;
Though not arrayed in splendor,
He makes the grave surrender. [Refrain]

4 The weak and timid find
How meek He is and kind;
To them He gives a treasure
Of bliss beyond all measure. [Refrain]

5 Then go thy Lord to meet;
Strew palm leaves at His feet;
Thy garments spread before Him
And honor and adore Him. [Refrain]
