        1. Hosanna to the living Lord!
        Hosanna to the Incarnate Word!
        To Christ, Creator, Savior, King,
        Let earth, let heaven, hosanna sing.

        2. O Savior, with protecting care
        Abide in this Thy house of prayer,
        Where we Thy parting promise claim,
        Assembled in Thy sacred name.

        3. But, chiefest, in our cleansed breast,
        Eternal, bid Thy Spirit rest
        And make our secret soul to be
        A temple pure and worthy Thee.

        4. 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.
