Yet, 'mid the wild and wintry gale, When death rides darkly o'er the sea,
And strength and earthly daring fail,
Come, Jesus, come! and, as of yore,
A harbinger Thy feet before,
So now may grace, with heavenly shower,
Sow in our souls the seed of power,
Hail to the Lord's Anointed,
Great David's greater Son!
His reign on earth begun!
To let the captive free;
And rule in equity.
He shall come down like showers
Upon the fruitful earth,
Spring in His path to birth;
Before Him on the mountains
And Righteousness in fountains
Kings shall fall down before Him,
And gold and incense bring;
His praise all people sing;
And daily vows ascend;
A kingdom without end.
O'er every foe victorious
He on His throne shall rest;
All-blessing and all-blest:
His covenant remove;
That name to us is Love. Amen.

Hosanna to the Living Lord!
O, Saviour, with protecting care,
But chiefest in our cleansed breast,
So in the last and dreadful day,
Hosanna in the highest! Amen.
Lamb of God! Thou now art seated
High upon Thy Father's throne; All Thy gracious work completed,
All Thy mighty vict'ry won: Every knee in heaven is bending
To the Lamb for sinners slain; Every voice and harp is swelling
"Worthy is the Lamb to reign."
Lord, in all Thy power and glory,
Watching o'er Thy ransomed people,
Thou for us art interceding,
And a blessed rest preparing
Lamb of God! Thou soon in glory
Wilt to this sad earth return;
All that now despise Thee mourn. Then Thy saints shall rise to meet Thee,
With Thee in Thy kingdom reign; Thine the praise, and Thine the glory,
Lamb of God for sinners slain! Amen.

On Jordan's bank the Baptist's cry
Then cleansed be every breast from sin,
For Thou art our salvation, Lord,
All praise, Eternal Son to Thee,
O Come, O come, Emmanuel,
And ransom captive Israel,
That mourns in lonely exile here,
Until the Son of God appear—
O come, Thou Rod of Jesse, free
O come, Thou day-spring, come and cheer
