18 For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. 19 For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God. 20 For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope, 21 Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. 22 For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now. 23 And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body.(KJV)

1. Come, Thou precious Ransom, come, 
Only Hope for sinful mortals! 
Come, O Savior of the world! 
Open are to Thee all portals. 
Come, Thy beauty let us see; 
Anxiously we wait for Thee. 

2. Enter now my waiting heart, 
Glorious King and Lord most holy. 
Dwell in me and ne’er depart, 
Though I am but poor and lowly. 
Ah, what riches will be mine 
When Thou art my Guest Divine! 

3. My hosannas and my palms 
Graciously receive, I pray Thee; 
Evermore, as best I can, 
Savior, I will homage pay Thee, 
And in faith I will embrace, 
Lord, Thy merit through Thy grace. 

4. Hail, hosanna, David’s Son! 
Help, Lord, hear our supplication! 
Let Thy kingdom, scepter, crown, 
Bring us blessing and salvation, 
That forever we may sing: 
Hail, hosanna! to our King.
