rob gardner – hosanna (thy savior hath come) lyrics


[narration (man)]
on the sunday before passover, as jesus came nigh unto jerusalem for the feast, he sent two of his disciples, saying, go ye into the village; in the which ye shall find a colt tied: loose him and bring him hither

[narration (woman)]
and they brought the colt to jesus: and they cast their garments upon him and they set jesus thereon
and a very great multitude spread their garments in the way; others cut down branches from the trees, and strawed them in the way
and when he was come nigh, even now at the descent of the mount of olives, the whole multitude of the disciples began to rejoice and praise god with a loud voice for all the mighty works that they had seen

the promise of ages whom prophets foretold
for whom we have waited ere long
hath come to redeem us from slavery’s yoke
and deliver his people back home

come israel, come and see he who shall reign
in whom we will ever rejoice
we hear the sound of the glorious refrain
and it echoeth back in our voice

hosanna, hosanna, thy savior hath come
o israel and blessed he’ll ever be called
hosanna, hosanna, sing praises to god
for our hope, our deliv’rer, our all

oh, why should we wander as strangers from thee?
and turn from thy bounteous hand?
restore (and defend us, oh), set us free;
that beside thee, we ever may stand
he looks and ten thousands of angels rejoice
and myriads wait for his word
he speaks and eternity, filled with his voice
re+echoes the praise of her lord

hosanna, hosanna thy savior hath come
our hope! our salvation! our all!
