Representative Text

1 With wond'ring awe,
The wise men saw
The star in heaven springing,
And with delight,
Is peaceful night,
They heard the angels Singing:
Hosanna! Hosanna!
Hosanna to His name!

2 By light of star
They travelled far,
To seek the lowly manger;
A humble bed,
Wherein was laid
The wondrous little Stranger:
Hosanna! etc.

3 And still is found
The world around,
The old and hallowed story,
And still is sung,
In every tongue,
The angel's song of glory:
Hosanna! etc.

4 The heavenly star
Its ray afar
On every land is throwing,
And shall not cease
Till holy peace
In all the earth is glowing.
Hosanna! etc.
