Hosanna filio David
Benedictus qui venit in nomine Domini.
Rex Israel: Hosanna, Hosanna in Excelsis.
Confitemini Domino, quoniam bonus,
quoniam in saeculum misericordia eius.
Deus meus es tu, et confitebor tibi,
Deus meus, et exaltabo te.
Hosanna son of David:
Blessed is he that comes in the name of the Lord,
King of Israel:
Hosanna in the highest.
O give thanks unto the Lord, for he is good:
His mercy endures for ever.
Thou art my God and I will praise thee; thou art my God,
I will exalt thee.
