Original text and translations
Matt.21:9b Hosanna in the highest.
Is.63:1 Who is this that cometh from Edom, with dyed garments from Bozrah? this that is glorious in his apparel, travelling in the greatness of his strength? I that speak in righteousness, mighty to save.
Is.63:2 Wherefore art thou red in thine apparel, and thy garments like him that treadeth in the winefat?
Is.63:3a I have trodden the winepress alone; and of the people there was none with me: for I will tread them in mine anger, and trample them in my fury;
Is.63:4 For the day of vengeance is in mine heart, and the year of my redeemed is come.
And when as Judge Thou drawest nigh,
The secrets of all hearts to try;
When sinners meet their awful doom,
And saints attain their heavenly home;
O let us not for evil past
Be driven from Thy face at last;
But with the blessed evermore
Behold and love Thee and adore.
