        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 th' anointed King
        To David's holy Son!
        Help us, O Lord; descend and bring
        Salvation from the throne.

        4. Blest be the Lord, who comes to men
        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.
