1 This is the day the Lord hath made, he calls the hours his own; let heaven rejoice, let earth be glad, and praise surround the throne.
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 the anointed King, to David's only Son! Make haste to help us, Lord, and bring salvation from thy throne.
4 Blest be the Lord, who comes to us with messages of grace! Who comes, in God his Father's name, to save our sinful race.
5 Hosanna in the highest strains the Church on earth can raise; the highest heavens in which he reigns shall give him nobler praise.
