Representative Text

1 How sweetly o'er the mountain of Zion, lovely Zion,
The anthem of ages comes sweeping along;
The anthem of the faithful, we hear it, and, rejoicing,
Our hearts in glad measure keep tune with the song.

Refrain:
O the Lion of Judah hath triumphed forever,
O the Lion of Judah is mighty and strong;
Sweet anthem of the faithful, we hear it, and, rejoicing,
Our hearts in glad measure keep tune with the song.

2 O happy, happy tidings, the kingdom now is opened.
The seals are all broken; proclaim it afar;
From bondage and oppression by Him we are delivered,
The Lion of Judah, the bright Morning Star. [Refrain]

3 Hosanna in the highest, all glory everlasting,
The cross and its banner triumphant shall wave;
Hosanna in the highest, all glory everlasting,
The Lion of Judah His people will save. [Refrain]
