Dear Friend of Hymnary,

Our June fund drive (one of two such drives we offer each year) ends soon (on June 30), and we have almost reached our goal. If you haven't given yet, would you consider doing so today? Keeping this site going does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So, if you benefit from Hymnary.org, you can make your tax-deductible contribution through the Calvin College donation page, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team, thanks.
Harry Plantinga

1 Mantos y palmas esparciendo va
el pueblo alegre de Jerusalén.
Allá a lo lejos se vislumbra ya
en un pollino al Salvador Jesús.

Estribillo:
Mientras mil voces resuenan por doquier;
Hosanna al que viene en el nombre de Dios.
Con un aliento de gran exclamación
prorrumpen con voz triunfal:
"¡Hosanna! ¡Hosanna al Rey!"
"¡Hosanna! ¡Hosanna al Rey!"

2 Como en la entrada de Jerusalén,
todos cantamos a Jesús el Rey,
al Cristo vivo que nos llama hoy
para seguirle con amor y fe. (Estribillo)

1 Filled with excitement, all the happy throng
spread cloaks and branches on the city streets.
There in the distance they begin to see,
there on a donkey, comes the Savior, Christ.

Refrain:
From every corner a thousand voices sing
praise to the One who comes in the name of God.
Our acclamation breaks forth in shouts of praise,
our triumphant song of joy:
"Hosanna, hosanna to Christ!
Hosanna, hosanna to Christ!"

2 As in that entrance to Jerusalem,
hosannas we will sing to Jesus Christ,
To our Redeemer who still calls today,
asks us to follow with our love and faith. (Refrain)

Variants of the second stanza and other stanzas have appeared since its publication in Canciones de Fe y Compromiso (Songs of Faith and Promise), 1978, arranged by Alvin Schutmaat.” In correspondence with Dr. Young, Mr. Ruíz noted that he composed the hymn for the choir in a United Methodist congregation in Covington, Va., where he was a member for some time.
