Representative Text

1 Hosanna to King David’s Son,
Descended from the heav’nly throne;
In Christmas songs we hail His birth,
Who brought salvation to the earth.
Hosanna to King David’s Son,
Hosanna to King David’s Son,
Hosanna in the highest.

2 Hosanna to the newborn Child,
Of virgin mother, meek and mild!
In manger cradle see Him laid,
By whom the earth and heav’ns were made.
Hosanna to the Wonderful!
Hosanna to the Wonderful!
Hosanna in the highest.

3 Hosanna to th’Incarnate Word,
In Bethl’hem born! the mighty God!
Our hearts and tongues with joy shall raise
Their glad hosannas to His praise!
Hosanna to the mighty God!
Hosanna to the mighty God!
Hosanna in the highest.

4 With shepherds on Judea’s plains,
With angels in their nobler strains;
Let our hosannas joyful rise
To join the anthems of the skies!
Hosanna, everlasting Father!
Hosanna, everlasting Father!
Hosanna in the highest.

5 Let every nation, every voice,
In merry Christmas songs rejoice;
Both old and young with gladness sing,
That Christ is born to be our king!
Hosanna to the Prince of Peace!
Hosanna to the Prince of Peace!
Hosanna in the highest.
