Representative Text

1 "Hosanna unto David’s Son!"
The Hebrew offspring cry;
"Hosanna to the lowly One!"
The Gentile youth reply.

2 "Hosanna for His blessings given!"
Sang such as felt His hand;
"Hosanna," touched by Him from Heaven,
Sings our still blessèd band.

3 Bright with the face of God, He shows
Our angels’ guardian ranks;
Hosanna! as to them He goes,
We greet Him with our thanks.

4 From east to west, in shrines of praise,
As in the courts above,
We children our hosannas raise,
He breathed for us such love!

5 Kingdom, of which He said we are,
Below or in the skies,
Come shine in glory thence afar,
Until our spirits rise!
