The glad hosanna

Representative Text

1 Shout again the glad hosanna,
Shout again the glad hosanna,
Hither all your tributes bring;
Let the swelling anthem ring.

Peace, peace, peace,
For the morning star ascending,
Whispers softly, gently, peace, peace, peace,
Then shout again your glad hosanna,
Shout again your glad hosanna,
Shout again, shout again, shout, shout again!

2 O'er the hills the light is breaking,
Brightly glows the morning star;
And the watching shepherd haileth
Tidings, tidings from afar. [Chorus]

3 Let every one prolong the chorus,
Peace, good-will to men below;
Christ has come, and let the echo
Swell along from shore to shore. [Chorus]

4 Youth and age repeat the story,
God hath set the sinner free;
Unto him be all the glory,
Peal it over land and sea. [Chorus]
