 1.  Hosanna, loud hosanna,
        the little children sang;
     Through pillared court and temple 
        the lovely anthem rang.
     To Jesus, Who had blessed them 
        close folded to His breast,
     The children sang their praises,
        the simplest and the best.

 2.  From Olivet they followed 
        mid an exultant crowd,
     The victor palm branch waving,
        and chanting clear and loud.
     The Lord of earth and heaven 
        rode on in lowly state,
     Nor scorned that little children
        should on His bidding wait.

 3.  "Hosanna in the highest!" 
        that ancient song we sing,
     For Christ is our Redeemer, 
        the Lord of heaven our King.
     O may we ever praise Him 
        with heart and life and voice,
     And in His blissful presence 
        eternally rejoice!
