Full Text

1 Zion, at your shining gates,
See, the King of glory waits;
Haste your monarch now to greet,
Spread your palms before his feet.

2 [Text copyrigthed]

3 Come and give us peace within,
Loose us from the bands of sin,
Take away the heavy weight
Laid on us by greed and hate.

4 Give us grace your yoke to wear,
Give us strength your cross to bear,
Make us yours in deed and word,
Yours in heart and life, O Lord.

5 So when you shall come again,
Lord of angels and of men,
We with all your saints shall sing
Loud hosannas to our King.
