89. Hosanna, Loud Hosanna

1 Hosanna, loud hosanna,
The little children sang;
Through pillared court and temple
The joyful anthem rang.
To Jesus, who had blessed them
Close folded to His breast,
The children sang their praises,
The simplest and the best.

2 From Olivet they followed
'Mid an exultant crowd,
The victor palm branch waving,
And chanting clear and loud;
The Lord of earth and heaven
Ride on in lowly state,
Nor scorned that little children
Should on His bidding wait.

3 “Hosanna in the highest!”
The little children sang;
For Christ is our Redeemer,
The Lord of heaven our King.
O may we ever praise Him
wWth heart and life and voice,
And in His blissful presence
Eternally rejoice.
