Lyrics from A Collection of Sacred Hymns for the Use of the Latter Day Saints, 1844

1. The spirit of God like a fire is burning;
The latter day glory begins to come forth;
The visions and blessings of old are returning:
The angels are coming to visit the earth,
We'll sing and we'll shout with the armies of heaven;
Hosanna, Hosanna to God and the Lamb!
Let glory to them in the highest be given,
Henceforth and forever, amen and amen.

2. The Lord is extending the saints' understanding -
Restoring their judges and all as at first;
The knowledge and power of God are expanding,
The vail o'er the earth is beginning to burst.
We'll sing and we'll shout with the armies of heaven;
Hosanna, Hosanna to God and the Lamb!
Let glory to them in the highest be given,
Henceforth and forever, amen and amen.

3. We call, in our solemn assemblies, in spirit,
To spread forth the kingdom of heaven abroad,
That we through our faith may begin to inherit
The visions, and blessings, and glories of God.
We'll sing and we'll shout with the armies of heaven;
Hosanna, Hosanna to God and the Lamb!
Let glory to them in the highest be given,
Henceforth and forever, amen and amen.

4. We'll wash and be washed, and with oil be anointed,
Withal not omitting the washing of feet;
For he that receiveth his PENNY appointed,
Must surely be clean at the harvest of wheat.
We'll sing and we'll shout with the armies of heaven;
Hosanna, Hosanna to God and the Lamb!
Let glory to them in the highest be given,
Henceforth and forever, amen and amen.

5. Old Israel that fled from the world for his freedom,
Must come with the cloud and the pillar amain.
A Moses, and Aaron, and Joshua lead him,
And feed him on manna from heaven again.
We'll sing and we'll shout with the armies of heaven;
Hosanna, Hosanna to God and the Lamb!
Let glory to them in the highest be given,
Henceforth and forever, amen and amen.

6. How blessed the day when the lamb and the lion
Shall lie down together without any ire;
And Ephraim be crowned with his blessings in Zion,
As Jesus descends with his chariots of fire!
We'll sing and we'll shout with HIS armies, of heaven;
Hosanna, Hosanna to God and the Lamb!
Let glory to them in the highest be given,
Henceforth and forever, amen and amen.

Shall lie down together without any ire,
And Ephraim be crowned with his blessing in Zion,
As Jesus descends with His chariot of fire!
