Full Text

1 The children are coming, united and strong,
And now like an army are marching along;
With bright, smiling faces in chorus they sing,
Hosanna, Hosanna to Jesus our King.

To Jesus our King, our Saviour and King,
Hosanna, Hosanna to Jesus we sing;
O’er valley and mountain the chorus shall ring,
Hosanna, Hosanna to Jesus our King.

2 Their banners uplifted are waving in air,
White onward, still onward, their colors they bear;
Their hearts with their voices keep time while they sing,
Hosanna, Hosanna to Jesus our King. [Refrain]

3 Go forward, young soldiers, and trust in the Lord;
Go forward to duty, your counsel His word;
O’er ocean’s wide billows the echo shall ring,
Hosanna, Hosanna to Jesus our King. [Refrain]
