118 (3)Psalm 118 Version 3
(from v 24)
CM
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 Satanís empire fell;
Today the saints His triumphs spread,
    And all His wonders tell.
 
3  All praises to the anointed King,
    To Davidís holy Son!
O help us, Lord, descend and bring
    Salvation from Thy throne.
 
4  Blest be the Lord, Who comes to man
    With messages of grace;
Who comes, in God His Fatherís name,
    To save our sinful race.
 
5  Hosanna in the highest strains
    The church on earth can raise;
The highest heavens in which He reigns
    Shall give Him nobler praise.
 
Isaac Watts, 1674-1748
