Representative Text

1 Hosannas now the people sing,
Messiah comes, our glorious King;
We wave for him the victor’s palm,
Each voice shall raise for him a psalm.

Hosanna to the Lamb,
Hosanna to the Lamb,
Hosanna to the Lamb,
Hosanna to the Lamb of God.

2 Rejoice, O Zion! shout and sing,
Salvation he today doth bring;
Cry out, ye stones along the way,
Let nature’s heart rejoice today. [Refrain]

3 Ride on, ride on, O Prince of Peace!
Our souls from sin and guilt release;
Ride on, till ev’ry gate shall ope;
And ev’ry heart rejoice in hope. [Refrain]
