SING joyously ye girls and boys, | The children join the mighty throng,
And wave the solemn palms on high, 1. Each waves a branch of palm on high, 'Tis JESUS comes, Incarnate GOD,
They catch the echoes of the song,
And to His praise Hosanna cry.
O blest be He, etc.
Oh, Zion's daughter, great thy joy
To see Thy Monarch's triumph hour,
Soon, soon, He shall thy foes destroy, To captives He will bring release,
And manifest Salvation's power. And to the lost glad tidings send,
O blest be He, etc. To Pagan hearts His voice speak peace,
What though His Death and Passion sore From sea to sea His reign extend.
Are ever pictured to His eyes,
Yet for the joy that goes before,
O blest be He that cometh With palms and loud Hosannas greet
In the Name of the LORD,
For ever and for ever
May His Name be adored.
Amen. ( 48 )
