Lyrics:

[Verse 1, English]
Our pathway strewn with palm leaves and sweet flowers,
Sweetning the air on this great day of feasting,
Jesus comes forward and dries all our tears,
And prepares us for our journey home,
Let all his people sing in praise,
United voices sweetly singing to Him above,
Hosanna! Glory to God!
Blessed is He who preserves us for all time!

[Verse 2, French]
Sur nos chemins las rameaux et les flours
Sont ripandus dans ce grand jour de fete,
Jesus s’avance, il vient secher now pleus,
Deja la foule a l’aclamer s’apprete,
Peuples chantz, chantez, en choeur,
Que votre voix a notre voix reponde
Hosana! Gloireau Seigneur!
Ben ice lui qui vient sauver lemonde!

[Verse 2, English]
There is a voice that’s heard for o’er the land,
Cheet thee all who hast gain’d thy liberty,
Humanity and justice doth now reign,
Bright is our way this day and ever more,
Let all his people sing in praise,
United voices sweetly singing to Him above,
Hosanna! Glory to God!
Blessed is He who preserves us for all time!

[Verse 2, French]
Il a parle le peuples a sa voix ont recouvre leur liberte perdue
L’humanite donne a chacun ses droits
E’t la lumiere est a checun rendue;
Peuples chantz, chantez, en choeur,
Que votre voix a notre voix reponde
Hosanna! Gloireau Seigneur!
Ben ice lui qui vient sauver lemonde!

[Verse 3, English]
Rejoice thou holy land Jerusalem
Let children all sing for their freedom
And let them praise thee God of Bethlehem,
And praise and love will be given by thee.
Let all his people sing in praise,
United voices sweetly singing to Him above,
Hosanna! Glory to God!
Blessed is He who preserves us for all time!

[Verse 3, French]
Rejouis toi, Sinte Jerusalem,
De tes enfants chante lad’elivrance par charit’e le
Dieu de Bethleem Avec la foi t’apporte les perance!
Peuples chantz, chantez, en choeur,
Que votre voix a notre voix reponde
Hosana! Gloireau Seigneur!
Ben ice lui qui vient sauver lemonde!
