His voice he raised to God on high
Who he[a]rd his groans and drew him nigh
 
With joy and wonder all amaz’d
Amid the heavenly throng he gaz’d
While heavenly music charmed his ear
And angels notes remov’d all fear
 
Hosanna he aloud did cry
To God who dwells above the sky
Again Hosanna did resound
Among the heavenly hosts aroun[d]
 
His voice he rais’d in higher strai[n]
Echo’d and re-echo’d again
Till heaven and earth his voice did hear
Eternity did record bare [p. [169]]
His voice he raised to God on high
Who heard his groans and drew him nigh
 
With joy and wonder all amaz’d
Amid the heavenly throng he gaz’d
While heavenly music charmed his ear
And angels notes remov’d all fear
 
Hosanna he aloud did cry
To God who dwells above the sky
Again Hosanna did resound
Among the heavenly hosts around
 
His voice he rais’d in higher strain
Echo’d and re-echo’d again
Till heaven and earth his voice did hear
Eternity did record bare [p. [169]]
