Hosanna to Jesus, my soulís filled with praises,
Come, O my dear brethren, and help me to sing;
No music so charming, no look is so warming,
It gives life and comfort, and gladness within.
Hosanna is ringing, O how I love singing,
Thereís nothing so sweet as the sound of His name;
The angels in glory repeat the glad story
Of love which in Jesus is made known to man.

Hosanna to Jesus, who died for to save us;
I'll love Him, and serve Him wherever I go;
He's now gone to heaven the Spirit is given
To quicken and comfort His children below.
Hosanna to Jesus! my soul sweetly rises,
We soon will attain a far happier clime,
Where we will see Jesus, and dwell on His praises,
And with Him in glory eternally shine.
