1. Let children proclaim their Savior and King, our King;
To Jesus' name hosannas we sing, we sing.
Our best adoration to Jesus we give,
Who purchased salvation for all to receive,
|: Salvation for all to receive. :|

2. To him will we give our earliest days, our days.
And thankfully live to publish his praise, his praise;
Our lives shall confess him who came from above.
Our tongues shall all bless him, and tell of his love.
|: We'll bless him, and tell of his love. :|

3. In Innocent songs his coming we shout, we .shout,
If we should be silent the stones would cry out, cry out ;
But him, without ceasing, we all will proclaim,
And ever be praising our Jesus' name.
|: We '11 ever be praising his name. :|
