1 Mantos y palmas esparciendo va
el pueblo alegre de Jerusalén.
Allá a lo lejos se vislumbra ya
en un pollino al Salvador Jesús.

Estribillo:
Mientras mil voces resuenan por doquier;
Hosanna al que viene en el nombre de Dios.
Con un aliento de gran exclamación
prorrumpen con voz triunfal:
"¡Hosanna! ¡Hosanna al Rey!"
"¡Hosanna! ¡Hosanna al Rey!"

2 Como en la entrada de Jerusalén,
todos cantamos a Jesús el Rey,
al Cristo vivo que nos llama hoy
para seguirle con amor y fe. (Estribillo)

1 Filled with excitement, all the happy throng
spread cloaks and branches on the city streets.
There in the distance they begin to see,
there on a donkey, comes the Savior, Christ.

Refrain:
From every corner a thousand voices sing
praise to the One who comes in the name of God.
Our acclamation breaks forth in shouts of praise,
our triumphant song of joy:
"Hosanna, hosanna to Christ!
Hosanna, hosanna to Christ!"

2 As in that entrance to Jerusalem,
hosannas we will sing to Jesus Christ,
To our Redeemer who still calls today,
asks us to follow with our love and faith. (Refrain)
