389. This Is the Day the Lord Has Made

1 This is the day the Lord has made;
he calls the hours his own;
let heav'n rejoice, let earth be glad,
and praise surround the throne.

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

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

4 Blest be the Lord, who comes to men
with messages of grace;
who comes in God his Father's name
to save our sinful race.

5 Hosanna in the highest strains
the church on earth can raise!
The highest heav'ns in which he reigns
shall give him nobler praise.
