1. Behold! behold He cometh,
Who doth salvation bring;
Lift up your heads rejoicing,
And welcome Zion's King;
With hymns of joy we praise the Lord,
Hosanna to the th' Incarnate Word!
2. Hosanna to the Saviour,
Who came on Christmas morn,
And, of a lowly Virgin,
Was in a stable born;
Emmanuel! dear Jesus, come,
Within Thy children make Thy Home!
3. Yea, come in love and meekness,
Our Saviour now to be;
Come to be formed in us,
And make us like to Thee,
Before the Day of Wrath draw near,
When as our Judge Thou shalt appear.
4. Soon shalt Thou sit in glory
Upon the great White Throne,
And punish all the wicked,
And recompense Thine own;
When ev'ry word and deed and thought
To righteous judgment shall be brought.
