    Verse 1
    Hosanna to the living Lord!
    Hosanna to the the Incarnate Word!
    To Christ, Creator, Saviour, King,
    Let earth, let heaven, Hosanna sing:

    Chorus
    Hosanna, Lord! Hosanna in the highest!

    Verse 2
    Hosanna, Lord! Thine angels cry;
    Hosanna, Lord! Thy saints reply;
    Above, beneath us, and around,
    The dead and living swell the sound;

    Chorus
    Hosanna, Lord! Hosanna in the highest!

    Verse 3
    O Saviour, with protecting care,
    Return to this Thy house of prayer;
    Assembled in Thy sacred Name,
    Now we Thy parting promise claim:

    Chorus
    Hosanna, Lord! Hosanna in the highest!

    Verse 4
    But, chiefest, in our cleansed breast,
    Eternal! bid Thy Spirit rest;
    And make our secret souls to be
    A temple pure, and worthy Thee.

    Chorus
    Hosanna, Lord! Hosanna in the highest!

    Verse 5
    So in the last and dreadful day,
    When earth and heaven shall melt away,
    Thy flock, redeemed from sinful stain,
    Shall swell the sound of praise again.

    Chorus
    Hosanna, Lord! Hosanna in the highest!
