230. This Is the Day the Lord Hath Made

1 This is the day the Lord hath made;
The hours are all God's own;
Let Heav’n rejoice, let earth be glad,
And praise surround the throne.

2 Hosanna to the anointed King,
To David’s holy Son!
Help us, O Lord; descend and bring
Salvation from the throne.

3 Blest be the Lord, who comes in power
With messages of grace,
Who comes in this accepted hour
To save our sinful race.

4 Hosanna in the highest strains
The Church on earth can raise!
The highest heavens, in which God reigns,
Shall now resound with praise.
