Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

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!
