Hosanna to the Prince of light,
Of David's ancient line ;
His nature two, his person one,
Mysterious and Divine !
On him the government shall rest,
His greatness we'll extol,
High over all, for ever blest,
His name is wonderful.
Justice and grace with sweet accord,
His rising beams adorn ;
Let heaven and earth in concert join,
The promised child is born.
