Hosanna to the King!
Let happy voices ring
The praise of Him who triumphed o’er the grave;
He reigns as victor now,
To Him in homage bow;
Undying hope to us He gave.


Hosanna to the King!
Hosanna to the King!
The dreaded sway of death is o’er;
Hosanna to the King!
O let the glad notes ring;
Our Savior lives forevermore.

A crown more fair than morn
His brow doth now adorn,
And royal is the scepter in His hand;
He entered death’s domain
The victory to gain;
All fears flee at our king’s command.


He rules in loving power,
And gives a blessèd dower
Of lasting joy and comfort to His own;
Hosanna to the King!
A grateful tribute bring;
All praise to Jesus on His throne!
