Hymn 45 by Watts

Hallelujah Meter

Hosannah to the King
Of David's ancient blood!
Behold, he comes to bring
Forgiving grace from God:
Let old and young attend his way,
And at his feet their honors lay.

Glory to God on high,
Salvation to the Lamb;
Let earth, and sea, and sky,
His wondrous love proclaim:
Upon his head shall honors rest,
And every age pronounce him blest.

Isaac Watts (1674-1748)
Hymns and Spiritual Songs, Book III, 1707
