This Is the Day the Lord Hath Made Lyrics
1 This is the day the Lord has 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 Blessed is Jesus Christ, who came
with messages of grace,
who came in God the Father’s name
to save our sinful race.
5 Hosanna in the highest strains
the Church on earth can raise;
the highest heav’ns, in which he reigns,
shall give him nobler praise.
