1 When His salvation bringing,
To Zion Jesus came,
The children all stood singing
Hosanna to His Name;
Nor did their zeal offend Him,
But, as He rode along,
He let them still attend Him,
And smiled to hear their song.
Hosanna to Jesus they sang.
2 And since the Lord retaineth
His love for children still,
Though now as King He reigneth
On Zion's heavenly hill;
We'll flock around His banner
Who sits upon the Throne,
And cry aloud Hosanna
To David's royal Son:
Hosanna to Jesus we'll sing.
3 For should we fail proclaiming
Our great Redeemer's praise,
The stones, our silence shaming,
Would their Hosannas raise.
But shall we only render
The tribute of our words?
No; while our hearts are tender,
They too shall be the Lord's.
Hosanna to Jesus, our King.
Hymnal: according to the use of the Protestant Episcopal Church in the United States of America, 1871
When His salvation bringing. [Palm Sunday.] In H. and J. Gwyther's Psalmist, A Selection. of Psalms & Hymns, etc., Lond., 1830, there is 1 psalm version signed “J. King," and 1 psalm version and 4 hymns signed "I. King." One of the latter is "When His salvation bringing," No. 417, in 3 stanzas of 8 lines, with a chorus. This hymn is in extensive modern use. Concerning the author great, difficulty has been experienced in tracing his identity. Under date of Aug. 15, 1865, the Rev. John Gwyther informed D. Sedgwick that the signatures stood for "Joshua King, late Vicar of Hull."
In a second communication, dated Aug. 19, 1865, he writes further, "Mr. Joshua King was Curate to Mr. J. Eyton, of Wellington, Shropshire, when Mr. E. made his collection of Hymns and wrote them for his Book, but whether he published them in any other form I don't know. Mr. K. gave his Hymn Book to my brother." From the Registers of Eyton Church we find that Mr. King's name was John. He graduated at Queen's College, Cambridge, B.A. 1814; became Incumbent of Christ Church, Hull, in 1822, and died Sep. 12, 1858, aged 69.
