1 Hosannah to the royal Son
Of David's ancient line,
His natures two, His person one,
Mysterious and divine,
Mysterious and divine.
2 The root of David, here we find,
And offspring is the same:
Eternity and time are joined
In our Immanuel's name.
3 Blest He that comes to wretched men
With peaceful news from heaven;
Hosannahs of the highest strain
To Christ the Lord be given.
4 Let mortals ne'er refuse to take
Th'hosannah on their tongues,
Lest rocks and stones should rise, and break
Their silence into songs.
