Hosanna to the Son of David!
Listen to the people shout!
He heals the blind! He heals the lame!
Praise His name and shout it out!
Listen to the people calling-
voices rising – voices praising…
voices higher, all enthralling-
voices to the angels – raising…
echoes through the ancient ages-
spread your cloak, as on that day!
Jesus Christ again is coming-
spread your cloak for Him – make way!
Hosannah to the Son of David-
sing it loud and sing it clear!
Now, just as in ancient times,
Jesus Christ the Lord, is near!!
‘A very large crowd spread their cloaks on the road,
while others cut branches from the trees and spread them on the road.
The crowds that went ahead of Him and those that followed shouted,
Hosanna to the Son of David! Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord!
Hosanna in the highest!’
