Lyrics

Oh, come with cheerful voices,
And songs of triumph sing;
In holy joy uniting
To hail the Sav­ior King!

Refrain

Hosanna! hosanna!
Let earth and Heav’n repeat,
Hosanna! hosanna!
Salvation is complete!

Go spread your richest garlands
With loving hearts today;
And shout your loud hosannas,
For Je­sus comes this way.

Refrain

O, bring your palms of vic­to­ry,
And lay them at His feet;
The mighty Con­quer­or cometh,
Salvation is complete.
