1 When in the Lord Jehovah’s Name,
The Saviour lowly riding came,
Loudest and first an infant throng
Greeted His coming with their song,
Hosanna, hosanna, hosanna in the highest!

2 We too are taught to know the Lord,
To fear His Name, to read His Word;
And though we simple are and young,
Can praise Him with our joyful song,
Hosanna, hosanna, hosanna in the highest!

3 Soon shall the Lord again pass by
To judgment from His throne on high;
And from the saints’ assembled throng
Shall burst upon the world the song,
Hosanna, hosanna, hosanna in the highest!

4 Then may our youthful band be found
With coronals of triumph crowned;
Raising the heavenly hosts among,
Our chorus of eternal song,
Hosanna, hosanna, hosanna in the highest!
