     14 Sing, O daughter of Zion; shout, O Israel; be glad and rejoice with all the heart, O daughter of Jerusalem. 15 The LORD hath taken away thy judgments, he hath cast out thine enemy: the king of Israel, even the LORD, is in the midst of thee: thou shalt not see evil any more. 16 In that day it shall be said to Jerusalem, Fear thou not: and to Zion, Let not thine hands be slack. 17 The LORD thy God in the midst of thee is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over thee with joy; he will rest in his love, he will joy over thee with singing. 18 I will gather them that are sorrowful for the solemn assembly, who are of thee, to whom the reproach of it was a burden. 19 Behold, at that time I will undo all that afflict thee: and I will save her that halteth, and gather her that was driven out; and I will get them praise and fame in every land where they have been put to shame. 20 At that time will I bring you again, even in the time that I gather you: for I will make you a name and a praise among all people of the earth, when I turn back your captivity before your eyes, saith the LORD.(KJV)

Exultant raise thy voice 
To hail the day of glory 
Foretold in sacred story. 
Hosanna, praise, and glory! 
Our King, we bow before Thee.

Triumphant to the skies. 
Now comes the King most glorious 
To reign o’er all victorious: 
Hosanna, praise, and glory!

Yet as a King is known; 
Though not arrayed in splendor, 
Hosanna, praise, and glory! 
Our King, we bow before Thee.

How meek He is and kind; 
To them He gives a treasure 
Of bliss beyond all measure.

Bid Christ with thee abide. 
He graciously will hear thee 
And be forever near thee.

Strew palm-leaves at His feet; 
Thy garments spread before Him 
And honor and adore Him. 
Hosanna, praise, and glory! 
Our King, we bow before Thee.

With thee shall praise the Lord 
And every Gentile nation 
Respond with exultation: 
Hosanna, praise, and glory! 
Our King, we bow before Thee.
