Hillsong United – Hosanna lyrics

[Intro]
Hosanna, Hosanna
Hosanna in the highest (x2)
Hosanna in the highest

[Verse 1]
I see the King of glory
Coming on 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 (x2)

[Verse 2]
I see a generation
Rising up to take the place
With selfless faith, with selfless faith
I see a near revival
Stirring as we pray and seek

We're on our knees, we're on our knees

[Chorus]
Hosanna Hosanna
Hosanna in the highest
Hosanna Hosanna
Hosanna in the highest
[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 breaks Yours
Everything I am for Your Kingdom's cause
As I walk from earth into eternity


[Chorus]
Hosanna, Hosanna
Hosanna in the highest
Hosanna Hosanna
Hosanna in the highest
[Repeat the last chorus]

    Hosanna. Definition: giving the highest praise to one thing or being.
    Our mighty Lord God deserves every last bit of praise we can give. He is amazing in all ways. Lord God forgive us for our sins and I will repent until I'm clean in your eyes. I love you Lord God. I know you are the King of all. You alone are good and above all you are the great forgiver!

    This song changed my life. The words "break my heart for what breaks yours" kept repeating over & over. I felt I was to pray those words & did not want to! Finally prayed them for a week or two & forgot all about it. About 7 months later I received an offer to quit my nursing job & volunteer in thailand. I had minimum desire to do that - but asked for prayer and had unmistakable answers that I was to go. I called my sis who lives there to ask what I could do in addition to working for the christian counseling service. She told me that children as young as 3 are sold into prostitution. I am not a crying person, but I started bawling. A month later I realized that I had prayed "break my heart for what breaks yours" and I got my answer. I've been living in thailand for the past 9 months & plan to live here for years. Thanks to the writer & then thanks to the author who is god.

    Verse 1: that god is so powerful and mighty that even the earth trembles at him. That he is loving and merciful and that he gave up his one and only son, jesus, for our sins, he washes them away no matter what we do. Verse 2: that we need to teach the word of god to others who are not aware of him and that he will guide us this. When he comes we will be on our knees praying and worshiping him. Bridge: asking for god to cleanse us and make us anew and open up our eyes to his wonders and that we will see what he has done for us and that we will learn to be as him. When we fulfill this we will walk from this place to our home in heaven with him.

    As a part of the new generation, my life is ruin by doing something if it is bad or wrong together the others who are blind. When I was baptized my life automatically changed 'cause God has taught me the way where I go. Now I declare that the power of God will flow everyday. Hosanna in the highest, worthy to be praise, and savior of all nation.

    His song reminds us that jesus will be coming back in all his majesty and glory. It means according to the word in john 12: 13. Hosanna: blessed is the king of israel that cometh in the name of lord. It is a song that is preapering our hearts and also letting us know a great rivival is going to take place. It is not only a song but a daily prayer.

    This is ne of my all my time favorite worship songs. It is an awesome way to worship and prasie god and then the last versr becomes a prayer to me. I want god to teach me to love like he does, open my eyes and open my heart. I just fall to my knees and pray that and my whole day becomes completely changed. What a truly god inspired worship song!

    This song blesses me tremendously. God is so real in my life and everytime I hear or sing this song it goes beyond my understanding of god's unfailing love. God almighty loved me so much to forgive me of all my sins. I will serve him always while I'm in this earth and in eternity thereafter. My prayer is for god to reach all the lost souls out there. Thank you father for all your love for me! Please use me to bring others to you. Amen!

    Hosanna means "god saves" and the bible calls jesus our savior- he came to the save us from sin. When jesus made his way into jerusalem, people waved palm branches saying "hosanna in the highest! "
    I see jesus- the king of glory coming. I see a chosen people humbling themselves before that king of kings who is coming into our hearts by faith to purify us and purge us from our sinfulness and self righteousness. His blood has satisfied gods justice, and now we may come boldly to the throne of grace- and enter into gods presence, asking for the grace to overcome the sins in our heart. Indeed, god saves!

    I love my neeta. Thrz not a single day that passes by without her thought in my heart and mind. Sh loved me, took care of me, made me realize the meaning of love and life, but I never realized at that point of time. Never cared for her, but now when sh is gone, I can feel the empty space in my life, without her. Ready to do any thing to bring back my little princess back to my life.

    Reading all of the comment makes my heart melt <3 Just a today about a minute ago. There was a Guard (Hotel guard) that is problematic and stress due to his workmates persecution. I shared him the word Galatian 6:9. He cried. That word will change him. Holy spirit is at work. I remember this song for that. "Everything I am for Your Kingdom's cause" use me father! Help me to help others. To your glory and righteousness. All the praises and adoration belongs to God. I love you.

    Hosanna. I knew this holy word. It is related to our lord almighty. Hosanna is the grand sun of profit mohamad peace be upon him. Hosanna the grand sun. Is the one who secrifies his holy blood and holy body for the sake of humanity and for the sake of whole univers. Profit jesuse peace be upon him did secrify for the mankind nevertheless, our god helped him and pull him on the other hand god replaced profit ismaeal by his grand sun hosanna to be the secrifier for the mankind. All these processes are under the one god well to guide peaple how to know you and warship you. This is the main reason of our creature. If we knew the one god we will be truely guided by profits and thrie representatives and their instructions towards god's justice. Then, hopefully we will end to the haven. Or to the hell if we miss the massage.
