How sweetly o’er the mountain of Zion, lovely Zion,
The anthem of ages comes sweeping along;
The anthem of the faithful, we hear, and, rejoicing,
Our hearts in glad measure keep tune with the song.

Refrain

O the Lion of Judah hath triumphed forever,
O the Lion of Judah is mighty and strong.
Sweet anthem of the faithful,
We hear it, and, rejoicing,
Our hearts in glad measure keep tune with the song.

O happy, happy tidings, the kingdom now is opened,
The seals are all broken; proclaim it afar;
From bondage and oppression by Him we are delivered,
The Lion of Judah, the bright Morning Star.

Refrain

Hosanna in the highest, all glory everlasting,
The cross and its banner triumphant shall wave;
Hosanna in the highest, all glory everlasting,
The Lion of Judah His people will save.
