    Verse 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 His Throne.

    Verse 2
    Today He rose and left the dead,
    And Satan's empire fell;
    Today the saints His triumphs spread,
    And all His wonders tell.

    Verse 3
    Hosanna to the anointed King,
    To David's Holy Son!
    Help us, O Lord! descend and bring
    Salvation from Thy Throne.

    Verse 4
    Bless'd be the LORD, Who comes to men
    With messages of grace;
    Who comes, in GOD His Father's Name,
    To save our sinful race.

    Verse 5
    Hosanna in the highest strains
    The Church on earth can raise;
    The highest Heavens, in which He reigns,
    Shall give Him nobler praise.
