If you know where to get a good pho­to of Her­na­man or Ad­cock (head & shoul­ders, at least 200×300 pix­els),


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.
