The pure of heart,
Will sing a new song,
Hosanna in the Highest,
Your God Reigns.

For did He not promise,
And has He not said,
The Book shall be opened,
And there was silence in Heaven.

For all those who have faith,
Hold on, for yet a little while,
And He will come,
He is at the door.

All you who call out to the Lord,
Hold fast your faith,
You will see terror on all sides,
Your hearts will melt with fear.

Yet the Lord is faithful,
In a moment, before all faith fails,
He will return,
He will gather you,
The righteous on one side, the wicked on the other.

Then He will recompense,
Those slain in the name of the Lord,
The blood of the innocent,
And those wronged in His name.

The Book will be opened,
Your time has come, you kings of the earth,
Nothing will remain hidden,
But everything under the sun will be revealed.

The wicked will cry out on that day,
Let the rocks fall on us and hide us,
And He will crush them under His feet,
He will a-sign them into the depths of hell,
The fiery furnace and eternal damnation.

But to the faithful,
He places a robe of righteousness over them,
A crown of Salvation,
Never again oppressed,
But delighting in His presence always.

Lift up your voices, oh you saints,
Sing glory to the Most High,
For your God Reigns,
Hosanna in the Highest.

You saw me from a distance,
Eons ago and before my mothers womb,
You delighted in me,
In the creation of your child,
And sang over me.
All heaven rejoices.

For you Lord, have broken the shackles,
You have set the captives free,
And opened blind eyes,
Your creation sings of your glory.

He sings over you,
Such is His delight,
Precious in His eyes,
Love unconditional,
And what does He see?

Conceived, in His mind,
Precious creation,
Do you not know,
He died for you.
Utterly in love,
He did not see you writhing in your filth,
He did not see the sickness in you,
He did not see you bound in your sin.

What did He see?
He sees you,
Perfect in His love,
His arms encircle,
And His blood covers you,
He whispers in your heart,
“Trust me. I love you my child, for eternity”.

Praise Him,
Let all creation praise Him,
Our redeemer and saviour and friend,
Father to the fatherless,
Encompassing love to the rejected,
He rejoices and sings over you,
Precious child,
His child for eternity.
