1When children saw Thee coming, Lord,
According to the prophets’ word,
In lowly guise, they hailed Thee King,
And thus in fervent joy did sing,
Hosanna in the highest.
2Thy people now by faith divine,
Beneath the veil of bread and wine,
May own Thy Presence, and adore
With deeper feeling than of yore,
Hosanna in the highest.
3Hosanna! Hear Thy people’s cry,
Hosanna, save us, Lord most High,
No word is here so meet to sing,
No word can sweeter comfort bring,
Hosanna in the highest.
4And when our years have passed away
And here we may no longer stay
May we behold Thee face to face,
And “Worthy is the Lord” replace
Hosanna in the highest. Amen.
Matthew21:9And the multitudes that went before, and that followed, cried, saying, Hosanna to the son of David: Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord; Hosanna in the highest.
