Sion, Sion, haste to meet Him

Representative Text

1 Sion, Sion, haste to meet Him,
Lo, He comes, your Lord and King;
Wave the bright palm-branch before Him,
And with joy Hosannas sing.

2 See the eager crowd around Him
Strew with garments fair His way,
Honour to the Son of David,
With glad voices hear them say.

3 Even little tender children,
Haste their loving Lord to meet;
Sing Hosannas with sweet voices,
Strew-palm-branches at His feet.
