Thanks be to God for the victory over sin;
Thanks for His Word and the teaching therein;
Thanks for His Son whom He sent to proclaim
Tidings of good, and the earth to reclaim.

Refrain

Sing loud hosanna! Sing loud hosanna!
The victory’s gained o’er sin;
Loud swell the anthem by angels and by men;
Glory to God for the victory over sin.

Thanks for the gift of His loved, His only Son;
Thanks for the work which on earth He begun;
Thanks for the peace which it brings to the soul,
Working for Jesus, His love to unfold.

Refrain

Thanks for redemption, and purchase by His blood;
Thanks for the love He has taught in His Word;
Thanks for His Spirit, forever to reign,
Peace on the earth, and good will unto men.

Refrain
