Lyrics

Hosanna, now through Advent,
With loving hearts we sing,
For Jesus Christ is coming
To be His children’s king.

Hosanna! blessèd Jesus,
Come in our hearts to dwell,
And let our lives and voices
Thy praise and glory tell.

For we who sing hosanna
Must like our Savior be,
In gentleness and meekness,
In love and purity.
