See what a living stone
      The builders did refuse;

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.

~ Isaac Watts

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.
