Hosanna to the Son of David:                        Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord, The King of Israel.
Hosanna in the highest.


  1.  Give thanks to the Lord for his is good, his mercy endures forever.

22.  The stone the builders rejected has become the cornerstone.

23.  By the Lord, has this been done; it is wonderful in our eyes.

27.  The Lord is God and has enlightened us. Join in procession with leafy
       branches up to the horns of the altar.

28.  You are my God, I give you thanks; my God I offer you praise.
