Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Representative Text

1. To God our King, who rules above,
We bring our tribute and our love,
And gladly bow before His throne
With angel hosts, whose sweetest tone
Is heard in song of him who sings:
Hosanna to the King of kings!

Hosanna, hosanna!
Hosanna to our God!
Hosanna to the mighty God!
Hosanna, hosanna!
Hosanna to our Lord and King!

2. Let mountains lift their heads of stone,
And join the seas in swelling tone,
To echo back the song we sing
Of glory, glory to our King
Who saves us by His precious blood,
Oh, sing hosanna to our God! [Refrain]

3. Let sons of men, redeemed by blood,
Of the Incarnate Son of God
Join hosts above who sweep the lyre,
And all the bright angelic choir
Who day and night unwearied sing
Hosanna, to our glorious King! [Refrain]

4. Let things on earth, with things above,
Join in the anthem of His love,
Till earth and sea, and starry sky,
Unite as one to make reply
With blood-washed hosts, before the throne,
That Christ is King, and He alone. [Refrain]
