1 Children in the temple cry,
Hosanna! hosanna!
Angels carol from the sky,
Hosanna! hosanna!
Heav’n and earth declare his glory,—
Day and night repeat the story
Of our God the Wonderful!
Of our God the Wonderful!
Hosanna! hosanna!

2 To his side the lonely press;
Hosanna! hosanna!
King of earth his sway confess;
Hosanna! hosanna!
Prophets have foretold his glory,—
Infant voices sound the story
Of our God the Counselor!
Of our God the Counselor!
Hosanna! hosanna!

3 All his works o’er land and sea,—
Hosanna! hosanna!
Own his sovereign majesty,
Hosanna! hosanna!
Nations have beheld the wonders
Since the Day of Horeb’s thunders,
Of our mighty, mighty God!
Of our mighty, mighty God!
Hosanna! hosanna!

4 Once again the anthem swell,
Hosanna! hosanna!
Jesus hath done all things well,
Hosanna! hosanna!
He—the everlasting Father,
Saviour, Friend, and Elder Brother,—
Is our lowly Prince of Peace!
Is our lowly Prince of Peace!
Hosanna! hosanna!
