“Hosanna!” sang the early Saints

When truth was heard abroad.

“Hosanna!” sang the Nephites

When they saw the Lamb of God.

“Hosanna!” sang angelic choirs

Of Christ, the baby boy.

“Hosanna!” rings in temples

Prophets dedicate with joy.

Someday I’ll sing “Hosanna!” too

When Jesus comes again.

I’ll worship Him on bended knee

In a world that’s free from sin.

Then I will see His loving face,

And I hope that He will say,

“Well done, thou good and faithful,”

And with Him I can stay.

Hosanna!
