1 Listen to the shouts of praise!
someone great is coming here,
riding to the holy city,
nearer now the people cheer.
Jesus Christ, the King, is coming;
crowds are pouring down the street.
Raise your branches, O you children,
shout with joy and stamp your feet.

2 Now we see him gentle Jesus,
healer of the lame and blind,
humbly riding on a donkey,
friend of children, good and kind.
Look, he comes, the promised Saviour;
round him loud hosannas ring:
welcome him, you waiting people,
welcome Christ, your Lord and King!
