Hosanna

Intro/chorous1:
N.C        D         D
Hear the song of all Creation.
G   D
Hosanna!
D                       D
Hear the stars and moon and sun say.
A
Hosanna!
D                    D
Listen to the ocean waves,
G                         Em
And hear what the thunder says,
D               A       D
Hosanna to the King of kings!


Verse 1:
D
Hear the echo of the noise,
          G           D
As Jesus sets out to destroy,
         G
And cast out all the merchants 
               D
From the Holy Place.

See the anger in His eyes,
               G         D
But then look close and realize,
                         A      D
There is still a light upon His face!

Chorus 2:
D
Can't you keep these children quiet?
G
Hosanna!
D
This is no place for a riot.
A
Hosanna!
       D           
If you try to quell these girls and boys, 
          G
The very rocks will shout for joy!
D               A      D
Hosanna to the King of kings!

Verse 2:
D
As the courtyard settles down, 
              G          D
The children gather all around
                              G
To thank the one who gave them back
               D  A
Their place to pray.
     D
But soon their hearts are overcome,
               G                Em
They start to shout for joy and run
     D                A         D
To sing and leap and laugh and say,

Chorus 2:
D
Can't you keep these children quiet?
G
Hosanna!
D
This is no place for a riot.
A   D
Hosanna!
D
If you try to quell these girls and boys,
          G                   Em
The very rocks will shout for joy!
D              A
Hosanna to the King!
D              A
Hosanna to the King!
D              A        D
Hosanna to the King of kings!

This is a great song about a beautiful story of Jesus' life!  I love to
both listen to and play it!  If it looks a little odd, like at the
beginning.  Those are all down-strokes!  Do not strum that first chorus! 
Secondly, this song is played on piano, and there's a couple more things
you can do on piano than on guitar.  If you have any comments or questions
just e-mail me!
