1 Behold! behold He cometh,
Who doth salvation bring;
Lift up hour heads rejoicing,
And welcome Zion's King;
With hymns of joy we praise the Lord,
Hosanna to th' Incarnate Word!
2 Hosanna to the Saviour,
Who came on Christmas morn,
And, of a lowly Virgin,
Was in a stable born;
Immanuel! Blessed Jesus! come!
Within Thy children make Thy home.
3 Yea, come in love and meekness
Our Saviour now to be;
Come to be formed in us,
And make us like to Thee,
Before the Day of Wrath draw near,
When, as our Judge, Thou shalt appear.
4 Soon shalt Thou sit in glory
Upon "the great White Throne,"
And punish all the wicked,
And recompense Thine own;
When every word and deed and thought
To righteous judgment shall be bright.
5 Here, good and bad are mingled;
But on that Judgment Day
The Angels shall divide them,
And take the bad away;
Grant, Lord, that we be faithful found
When the last trumpet-call shall sound!
