This Is the Day the Lord Hath Made

Melody - "Arlington," Thomas Augustine Arne, 1762; arr. by Ralph Harrison, 1784
Melody 2 - Nun danket all' und bringet Ehr', Johann Crüger, 1653; Seq. by Richard Jordan

Isaac Watts, 1719

This is the day the Lord hath 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 triumph 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 Thy throne.

4. Blest be the Lord, Who comes to men
With messages of grace;
Who comes, in God His Father's 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.
