Subject(s): Jesus Christ; Worship


Up! sluggard soul! awake and raise
To thy blest Lord a song of praise,
Who lifts thee from the gloomy grave
When low on earth thou liest, --
To Him who lived and died to save,
Hosanna in the highest!

To Him, thy friend of friends, whose love
Invites thee to a home above,
When thou, the world's poor outcast slave,
In grief and anguish criest, --
To Him who lived and died to save,
Hosanna in the highest!

His love a living stream hath found
For pilgrims faint on barren ground,
Their parched and languid souls to lave,
When earthly streams are driest, --
To Him who lived and died to save,
Hosanna in the highest!
