Friday Slowdown


 Hosanna, loud hosanna, 
 the little children sang, 
 through pillared court and temple 
 the lovely anthem rang. 
 To Jesus, who had blessed them 
 close folded to his breast, 
 the children sang their praises, 
 the simplest and the best. 

 From Olivet they followed 
 mid an exultant crowd, 
 the victor palm branch waving, 
 and chanting clear and loud. 
 The Lord of earth and heaven 
 rode on in lowly state, 
 nor scorned that little children 
 should on his bidding wait. 

 "Hosanna in the highest!" 
 that ancient song we sing, 
 for Christ is our Redeemer, 
 the Lord of heaven our King. 
 O may we ever praise him 
 with heart and life and voice, 
 and in his blissful presence 
 eternally rejoice!

Praise is rising, eyes are turning to You, we turn to You
Hope is stirring, hearts are yearning for You, we long for You
'Cause when we see You, we find strength to face the day
In Your Presence all our fears are washed away, washed away

CHORUS
Hosanna, hosanna
You are the God Who saves us, worthy of all our praises
Hosanna, hosanna
Come have Your way among us
We welcome You here, Lord Jesus

Hear the sound of hearts returning to You, we turn to You
In Your Kingdom broken lives are made new, You make us new
'Cause when we see You, we find strength to face the day
In Your Presence all our fears are washed away, washed away

 'Cause when we see You, we find strength to face the day
In Your Presence all our fears are washed away
'Cause when we see You, we find strength to face the day
In Your Presence all our fears are washed away, washed away

CHORUS
Hosanna, hosanna
You are the God Who saves us, worthy of all our praises
Hosanna, hosanna
Come have Your way among us
We welcome You here, Lord Jesus
(Repeat)
Hosanna, hosanna
