Representative Text

1 Children once were heard to sing
Welcome unto Israel's King,
When so many silent were,
Their hosannas fill'd the air.

Shout hosanna unto David's Son!
Shout hosanna as with joy we sing!
Shout hosanna! shout hosanna!
Shout hosanna unto Christ our King!

2 Oh, how gladly we should try,
When the Lord is passing by,
Some kind sign of love to bring,
And hosannas loudly sing. [Chorus]

3 Jesus, thou art still the same,
Still thou dost thy love proclaim;
Oh, come visit us today,
Enter ev'ry heart we pray. [Chorus]
