Psalm 118

by
 v.
22-27 S.
M.
An hosanna for the Lord's day; or, A new song of salvation by Christ.
See what a living stone The builders did refuse; Yet God hath built his church thereon, In spite of envious Jews.
The scribe and angry priest Reject thine only Son; Yet on this Rock shall Zion rest, As the chief corner-stone.
The work, O Lord, is thine, And wondrous in our eyes; This day declares it all divine, This day did Jesus rise.
This is the glorious day That our Redeemer made; Let us rejoice, and sing, and pray, Let all the church be glad.
Hosanna to the King Of David's royal blood; Bless him, ye saints, he comes to bring Salvation from your God.
We bless thine holy word, Which all this grace displays; And offer on thine altar, Lord, Our sacrifice of praise.
