Mary Gilbert-Wray, in Joyful Praise, by Charles H. Gabriel (Cincinnati, Ohio: Jennings & Graham, 1902), number 145.

Oran Williams (🔊 pdf nwc).

In the temple the children sang,
Hosanna, hosanna!
Thro’ its arches the chorus rang,
Hosanna to the Lord!

Refrain

In the temple today we sing;
Loud our voices in gladness ring;
Praise to Jesus, our Lord and king,
Hosanna to the Lord!

Christ the children’s glad voices heard,
Hosanna, hosanna!
Voices sweet as the woodland bird,
Hosanna to the Lord!

Refrain

Now with praises our hearts we bring,
Hosanna, hosanna!
Lord, receive our free offering,
Hosanna to the Lord!
