Performer: Michael Card Album: "Close Your Eyes, So You Can See" Copyright info: Covenant Artists, LLC. From: Caleb Shoemaker 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.
