	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 men and angels
	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.
	Oh, may we ever praise Him
	With heart and life and voice
	And in His blissful presence
	Eternally rejoice.
