1 There were many children’s voices,
In the songs the Hebrews sang,
When they crossed the mighty waters,
And the loud hosannas rang;
They were fleeing from oppression,
From the tyrant’s cruel hand;
They were marching on to Canaan,
To find the Promised Land.

Hosanna, hosanna,
Sang the children by the sea;
Hosanna, hosanna,
For the Lord hath made us free.

2 They were marching through the deserts,
Through the burning fiery day,
But they sang the songs of triumph
As they marched along the way;
Oh, the cruel horse and rider,
They were wrecked upon the strand;
While the children marched to Canaan,
To find the Promised Land. [Refrain]

3 There are many children’s voices
In the grand triumphal song
Of the ransomed ones of Jesus,
As they sing and march along;
They have heard the voice of Jesus,
And, a faithful pilgrim band,
They are marching on to Canaan,
To find the Promised Land. [Refrain]
