“Hosanna!” Friend, Jan. 2007, 7


    “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.
