1. Hosanna to the living Lord!
Hosanna to the th’Incarnate Word!
To Christ, Creator, Savior, King,
Let earth, let heav'n, 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 heav'n shall melt away,
Thy flock, redeemed from sinful stain,
Shall swell the sound of praise again.
