1 Hosannah to JESUS on high!
Another has enter'd his rest;
Another is 'scap'd to the sky,
And lodg'd in Immanuel's breast:
The soul of our brother is gone
To heighten the triumph above;
Exalted to JESUS' throne!
Exalted by JESUS' love!

2 How happy the Angels that fall
Transported at Jesus' name!
The saints, whom he soonest shall call
To share in the feast of the Lamb!
No longer imprison'd in clay,
Who next from this dungeon shall fly?
Who first shall be summon'd away?
My merciful God - is it I?

3 O Jesus, if this be thy will,
That suddenly I should depart,
Thy council of mercy reveal,
And whisper the call to my heart:
O give me a signal to know
If soon thou would'st have me remove,
And leave the dull body below,
And fly to the regions of love.
