Lyrics and chords

1 The Saviour of the World ( Luke 19. 36-44)

C G/D D D7 G C/G

G B7 C

See the Saviour of the World, He is coming,

Am7/D D7 G Am7/G

Riding humbly on a donkey into town.

G/Ab B7 C

See the joyful crowds all laying palms before him,

G/D D D7 G C/G G

On his way into Jerusalem.

Chorus

G C G Am

Hosanna (Hosanna) Hosanna (Hosanna)

G C G D7 G

Hosanna (Hosanna) Sanna- Hosanna (Sanna)

G B7 C

And the Scribes and Pharisees are standing watching,

Am7/D D7 G Am7/G

Hateful thoughts and accusations in their minds.

G/Ab B7 C

For the man now hailed ‘Messiah’ by the people,

G/D D D7 G C/G G

Boldly rides into Jerusalem.

G B7 C

And he looks upon his people with such longing,

Am7/D D7 G Am7/G

For he knows they’ll turn against him very soon.

G/Ab B7 C

Death is calling him, just waiting round the corner,

G/D D D7 G C/G G

Still he rides into Jerusalem.
