Representative Text

1 Hosanna to Jesus, our Savior and king,
No theme can so please us, and cause us to sing;
We’ll tell of His might, and we’ll sing of His love,
And swell the new song of the ransomed above.

Refrain:
Hosanna to Jesus, our Savior and king,
No theme can so please us, and cause us to sing.

2 All worthy is Jesus, whose life has been giv’n,
From sin to release us, and fit us for Heav’n;
To Him that was slain, yet the Ancient of Days,
Be glory and blessing, dominion and praise. [Refrain]

3 All honor to Jesus, the power of whose love
From Satan now frees us, and guilt can remove;
Our hearts be His throne and our lives be this song,
To tell all the world unto whom we belong. [Refrain]
