Hosanna to Christ, Matt. 21. 9. Luke 19. 38 40.

Music: Not Stated

1. Hosanna to the royal Son
    Of David's ancient line,
His natures two, his person one,
    Mysterious and divine.

2. The root of David here we find,
    And offspring is the same;
Eternity and time are join'd
    In our Immanuel's name.

3. Bless'd he that comes to wretched men
    With peaceful news from heaven;
Hosannas of the highest strain
    To Christ the Lord be given.

4. Let mortals ne'er refuse to take
    Th' hosanna on their tongues,
Lest rocks and stones should rise, and break
    Their silence into songs.
