[Verse 1] G C D G “Hosanna, loud hosanna” the little children sang; G Em C Dsus4 D G Through pillared court and temple the lovely anthem rang. G D/F# G D/F# To Jesus, who had blessed them, close folded to his breast, G C D G The children sang their praises, the simplest and the best. [Verse 2] G C D G From Olivet they followed mid an exultant crowd, G Em C Dsus4 D G The victory palm branch waving, and chanting clear and loud. G D/F# G D/F# The Lord of earth and heaven rode on in lowly state, G C D G Nor scorned that little children should on his bidding wait. [Verse 3] G C D G "Hosanna in the highest!" That ancient song we sing, G Em C Dsus4 D G For Christ is our Redeemer, the Lord of heaven, our King. G D/F# G D/F# O may we ever praise him with heart and life and voice, G C D G and in his blissful presence eternally rejoice.
