Hosanna Loud Hosanna Lyrics
1 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.
2 From Olivet they followed
mid an exultant crowd,
the victory 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.
3 “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
Hosanna Loud Hosanna Hymn Lyrics
“Hosanna Loud Hosanna” is a hymn that was written in 1873 by Jennette Threlfall. This song talks about the children who participated in Christ entry into Jerusalem on a donkey on Psalm Sunday.
While talking about Christ entry into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday, it digresses a bit to talk of how Jesus welcomed children and blessed them while carrying them in his hands.
For those not familiar with this story below is Mark 11:7-11
7 When they brought the colt to Jesus and threw their cloaks over it, he sat on it.
8 Many people spread their cloaks on the road, while others spread branches they had cut in the fields. 9 Those who went ahead and those who followed shouted,
“Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!”[b]
10 “Blessed is the coming kingdom of our father David!”
“Hosanna in the highest heaven!”
11 Jesus entered Jerusalem and went into the temple courts. He looked around at everything, but since it was already late, he went out to Bethany with the Twelve.”
Jeannette Threlfall was born in 1821 in Blackburn, Lancashire, England.
She was orphaned at an early age and later became an invalid due to accidents.
If ever someone had a right to complain and feel miserable it should have been her, but she did not take that bait.
She instead lived positively ministering to others and wrote hymns that are full of positive messages filled with hope.
She died in 1880 in Westminster, London, United Kingdom.
