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!
Today he rose and left the dead,
and Satan’s empire fell;
today the saints his triumphs spread,
and all his wonders tell.
Hosanna to the anointed king,
to David’s holy Son!
Help us, O Lord; descend and bring
salvation from your throne.
