The wise men, with wondering awe, saw the star springing in heaven. And with delight they heard the angels singing in the peaceful nighttime: “To his name hosanna, hosanna, hosanna!”

They traveled far by starlight to seek the lowly manger—the humble bed wherein the wondrous little stranger was laid. “To his name hosanna, hosanna, hosanna!”

And around the world the old and hallowed story is still found. And the angels’ song of glory is still sung in every tongue: “To his name hosanna, hosanna, hosanna!”

The heavenly star is throwing its rays afar on every land. It won’t cease until holy peace is growing in all the earth. “To his name hosanna, hosanna, hosanna!”
