1 This is the day the Lord hath made;
and unto us did give;
come, let us now rejoice in it,
and gladly in it live!
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!
Make haste to help us, Lord, and bring
salvation from thy throne.
4 Blest be the Lord, who comes in power
with messages of grace,
who comes in this accepted hour
to save our sinful race.
5 Hosanna in the highest strains
the church on earth can raise:
the highest heav'ns, in which God reigns
shall give him nobler praise.
