HYMN 285

“And the children crying in temple
saying hosanna to the Son of 
David" - Matt. 21:15

1.  HOSANNA! raise the pearling hymn 

     To David's Son and Lord

     With Cherubim and Seraphim 

     Exalt the incarnate word.

2.  Hosanna! Lord, our feeble tongue 

     No lofty strains can raise 

     But thou will not dispise the young 

     Who meekly chant thy praise.

3.  Hosanna! Sovereign, Prophet, Priest 

     How vast Thy gifts, how free

     Thy blood, our life; Thy word our feast; 

     Thy name our only plea.

4.  Hosanna! Master, Lo we bring

     Our offerings to thy throne

     Not gold nor myrrh, nor mortal thing 

     But hearts to he Thine own.

5.  Hosanna! once thy gracious ear 

     Approved a lisping throng

     Be gracious Still design to hear 

     Our poor, but grateful song.

6.  O Saviour if redeem‘d by Thee 

     Thy temple we be behold, 

     Hosanna through eternity

     We'll sing to harps of gold.  Amen
