(This chant can be presented by having 4 groups or persons read each verse aloud.)
Hosanna ! Hosanna ! Hear the people cry.
Riding on a donkey The King is passing by.
Riding to Jerusalem Wave those palms and cheer - Jesus the Messiah the “Promised One” is here.
Crucify ! Crucify ! Hear the people shout !
Tell governor Pilate To bring Jesus out.
Crucify ! Crucify ! Hear the people cry -
“He claimed to be our king, Now he must die !”
“Forgive them ! Forgive them ! They don’t know what they do
I’m willing to die On this cross for you.
I’m your king, Lord, Messiah. It is finished ! I cry -
For your sins to be forgiven God’s Son must die “
He’s risen ! He’s risen ! See the joy on Mary’s face.
She came to the tomb And now she must race
To tell the disciples - “We don’t need to fear,
Jesus has been raised to life . He’s alive ! He’s here ! “
