HYMNS.

ADVENT SUNDAY.

ΜATT. XXI.

HOSANNA to the living Lord !
Hosanna to the incarnate Word !
To Christ, Creator, Saviour, King,
Let earth, let heaven, Hosanna sing !

Hosanna! Lord! Hosanna in the highest !

Hosanna, Lord! thine angels cry;
Hosanna, Lord! thy saints reply ;
Above, beneath us, and around,
The dead and living swell the sound ;
Hosanna ! Lord! Hosanna in the highest!
Oh, Saviour! with protecting care,
Return to this thy house of prayer!
Assembled in thy sacred name,
Where we thy parting promise claim!

Hosanna! Lord! Hosanna in the highest !

But, chiefest, in our cleansed breast,
Eternal ! bid thy spirit rest,
And make our secret soul to be
A temple pure, and worthy thee!

Hosanna ! Lord ! Hosanna in the highest !

So, in the last and dreadful day,
When earth and heaven shall melt away,
Thy flock, redeem'd from sinful stain,
Shall swell the sound of praise again,

Hosanna ! Lord ! Hosanna in the highest !
