1 Hosanna we sing, like the children dear,
In the olden days when the Lord lived here;
He blessed little children, and smiled on them
While they chanted His praise in Jerusalem.
2 Alleluia we sing, like the children bright,
With their harps of gold and their raiment white,
As they follow their Shepherd, with loving eyes
Through the beautiful valleys of Paradise.
3 Hosanna we sing, for He bends His ear,
And rejoices the hymns of His own to hear;
We know that His heart will never wax cold
To the lambs that He feeds in His earthly fold.
4 Alleluia we sing in the Church we love,
Alleluia resounds in the Church above;
To Thy little ones, Lord, may such grace be given,
That we lose not our part in the song of heaven.
