Full Text

The joy and wonder of our eyes;
This is the day that proves it thine,
The day that saw our Savior rise.

Sinners, rejoice; and saints, be glad;
Hosanna, let his name be blest;
A thousand honors on his head,
With peace, and light, and glory rest!

In God's own name he comes to bring
Salvation to our dying race;
Let the whole church address their King
With hearts of joy and songs of praise.
