1  Hosanna to the living Lord!
Hosanna to the th’Incarnate Word!
To Christ, Creator, Saviour, King,
Let earth, let heaven, hosanna sing.
R: Hosanna Lord! Hosanna in the highest!

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

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.
R:

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.
R:
