Representative Text

1. Hosanna to the Son of David.
Hosanna!
Thy palmtrees fed with dew and sun,
Thy cedars crowning Lebanon,
Thine olives of Gethsemane,
Lord of Light, all worshipped Thee.

2. Hosanna to the Son of David.
Hosanna!
Let oaks and elms take up Thy praise.
Let maples, birches, willows raise
Adoring branches in Thy sight,
Lord of Beauty, Lord of Light.

3. Hosanna to the Son of David.
Hosanna!
Thou art the vine, to Thee we bring
Ourselves Thy branches, glad with spring.
By ripening fruit may we be known,
Lord of Light and Love, Thine own.
