    1. Said Samuel, “Within five years

    A night will be as day,

    And Baby Jesus will be born

    In a land far, far away.”

    2. Across the sea, in Bethlehem,

    Lord Jesus came to earth

    As Samuel had prophesied,

    And angels sang His birth.

    Chorus:

    Hosanna! Hosanna! Oh, let us gladly sing.

    How blessed that our Lord was born;

    Let earth receive her King!
