During our last fund drive one donor said this: "I love hymns ... If you asked for money, it means you need it! Please keep the work going. And please, accept my widow's mite. God bless you."

She was right. We only ask for money twice a year, and we do so because we need it.

1. In the temple the children sang,
Hosanna, hosanna!
Thro’ its arches the chorus rang,
Hosanna to the Lord!

In the temple today we sing;
Loud our voices in gladness ring;
Praise to Jesus, our Lord and king,
Hosanna to the Lord!

2. Christ the children’s glad voices heard,
Hosanna, hosanna!
Voices sweet as the woodland bird,
Hosanna to the Lord! [Refrain]

3. Now with praises our hearts we bring,
Hosanna, hosanna!
Lord, receive our free offering,
Hosanna to the Lord! [Refrain]
