HOW shall I receive Thee,
How greet Thee, Lord, aright?
My hope, my heart's delight!
Thy lamp within my breast,
All that may please Thee best.
2 Thy Zion palms is strewing,
And branches fresh and fair;
An anthem shall prepare.
Thy glories to proclaim;
She fain would serve Thy Name.
3 I lay in fetters groaning,
Thou com'st to set me free!
Thou com'st to honor me!
A treasure safe on high
As earthly riches fly.
4 Love caused Thy incarnation,
Love brought Thee down to me; Thy thirst for my salvation
Procured my liberty.
O love beyond all telling,
That led Thee to embrace, In love all love excelling,
Our lost and fallen race!
5 Rejoice then, ye sad-hearted,
Who sit in deepest gloom, Who mourn o'er joys departed,
And tremble at your doom;
Is standing at the door;
SING Hosanna! Blessed be He that cometh
In the name of the Lord, Hosanna to our King!
He that cometh in the name of the Lord, He that cometh in the name of the Lord.
Hosanna, Hosanna, Hosanna to our King!
Hosanna to our King!
SING Hosanna! Zion, sing!
, David's Son thy gates is nearing, Hail the triumph of thy King;
Set the throne for His appearing; Strew thy palms; prepare the way: Lo, He comes to thee today .
2 Hail! Hosanna! Welcome Thou!
Come; behold, we go to meet Thee; Low before Thy feet we bow,
With our hearts arrayed to greet Thee. Enter, Lord, within our gates, Where a welcome for Thee waits.
3 Hail! Hosanna! Glorious King,
Prince of Peace and Victor splendid! Thou to all Thine own wilt bring
All the spoils of conflict ended. Thine the right, exalted, sure,
And Thy kingdom shall endure.
Who dost graciously elect us
Reign Thou in us and protect us.
5 Hail! Hosanna! Lord, make haste;
Come, Thy clemency revealing, Not in servant's form abased,
Nor Thy majesty concealing ; Come, that Zion now may see David's Son, and God's in Thee.
6 Hail! Hosanna! Come, O Christ;
Help and prosper, we implore Thee,
Truly contrite hearts before Thee.
7 Hail! Hosanna! Here with Thee
In Gethsemane we wander,
Evermore to praise Thee yonder.
8 Far and near Hosannas heard !
Haste Thine advent, O Lord Jesus ! O Thou Blesséd of the Lord,
Wilt stand there and not release us. Hail! Hosanna! Dost Thou hear? Yea, Hosanna! Thou art near!
Behold the King of glory waits;
2 The Lord is just, a helper tried,
Mercy is ever at His side;
3 O blest the land, the city blest,
Where Christ the Ruler is confessed:
4 Fling wide the portals of your heart,
Make it a temple set apart
5 Redeemer, come, I open wide
My heart, to Thee; here, Lord, abide:
85 ZION'S daughter, O rejoice!
, Shout aloud, Jerusalem ! Lo, thy King doth come to thee,
