THIS is the day the Lord has made,
He calls the hours his own;
Let heaven rejoice, and earth be glad,
And praise surround the throne.

To-day he rose and left the dead,
And satan's empire fell;
To-day the saints his triumphs spread,
And all his wonders tell.

Blest be the Lord who come to men
With messages of grace;
Who comes in God the Father's name 
To save our sinful race.

Hosanna in the highest strains
The church on earth can raise:
Hosanna! let the highest heavens 
Award him nobler praise.

Hosanna to the Lord be given
In loudest, noblest strains!
Hosanna in the highest heavens!
The great Redeemer reigns.
