O Lord of glory and God over all, blessed forever! I heartily thank Thee
for all Thy great and inexpressible benefits, also that Thou out of
unspeakable love didst leave Thy throne of divine glory and condescend to
us poor creatures in this vale of tears, to release us lost and condemned
sinners from the prison of affliction. I praise Thee, Jesus! Thou King of
glory! with all my strength and powers, that Thou didst not appear upon
earth for any other purpose than to deliver us from the power of our
enemies, of sin, of death, hell and the devil; to effect by Thy precious
blood eternal reconciliation between us and Thy heavenly Father, and to
regain for us, through Thy precious merits, the lost righteousness.
Hosanna! Save now, I beseech Thee, O Lord, Lord, I beseech Thee, send now
I cast myself in deepest humility before Thee and ask Thee with all my
heart to gladden at this time also by Thy gracious advent Thy church
which is everywhere oppressed; always dwell and abide with and among us
in this land and place at all times, and in our hearts, with Thy pure
Word and most holy Sacraments, and let goodness and mercy come upon us.
Be gracious unto us, most beloved Saviour! and bless us, bestow upon us
temporal and eternal peace. Our enemies however cast into the prison
which they have prepared for us, change their counsels directed against
us into foolishness, for Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory
forever. Hosanna! Save now, I beseech Thee, O Lord, Lord, I beseech Thee,
send now prosperity!
Dear Jesus! grant unto me and all christians Thy Spirit, that He may
cleanse and purify our hearts of all impurity and sin, in order that Thou
mayest desire to enter in and dwell among us. Help us to receive Thee
with true faith, heartily to rejoice with Thy spiritual Zion for Thy
benefits, to follow Thee constantly with christian patience and humility
and confidently await Thy second coming with constant repentance and
believing hope, also at the same time serve Thee here in the kingdom of
grace with a holy walk, and finally in the kingdom of glory we shall with
glorified tongues everlastingly sing our Hosannas to Thy honor, together
with the Father and the Holy Ghost. Hosanna! Save now, I beseech Thee, O
Lord, Lord, I beseech Thee, send now prosperity! Amen.
