"Hosanna" as written by and Kirk Franklin....
I see the king of glory
Coming down the clouds with fire
The whole earth shakes, the whole earth shakes
I see his love and mercy
Washing over all our sin
The people sing, the people sing

Chorus
Hosanna, hosanna
Hosanna in the highest

Verse 2
I see a generation
Rising up to take the place
With selfless faith, with selfless faith
I see a new revival
Staring as we pray and seek
We're on our knees, we're on our knees

Bridge
Heal my heart and make it clean
Open up my eyes to the things unseen
Show me how to love like you have loved me
Break my heart for what is yours
Everything I am for your kingdom's cause
As I walk from earth into eternity

Hosanna

    General Comment"Hossana" - Praise Him. Hossana in the highest. PRAISE HIM in the highest!

    "I see his love and mercy
    Washing over all our sin" - just, thank you Lord! for saving us like that! and ridding us of sin! just amazing!

    General CommentThe first three lines, about the king of glory coming on the clouds with fire, generally signifies judgement, and the whole earth shaking might signify the accompanying upheavals and restructuring of the power structure, the downfall of authorities and kingdoms and the rise of new ones. It contrasts very well with the next three lines, about his love and mercy. However, these characteristics, those of love and mercy and those of righteousness and judgement, are not opposed, but work in concert (no pun intended).

    General Commentthat's how i've always heard it too.. but anytime i go to lyric pages, it says 'break my heart for what is yours' - but i never hear it sang that way.

    oh, buttt i also hear it 'break my heart FOR what breaks yours' [not from]

    oh well, either way, it means the same thing to me, and it's an amazing song.

    General Comment"Hosanna" is an exclamation of praise literally meaning, "Save, I pray".
