Dear John & Doves,
I have been saying "Hosanna" lately & just today heard this wonderful song w/lyrics performed by Paul Baloche http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xoz5wpycqvw // Seems to be a prophetic declaration for me :)
Blessings to you all , The Faithful One is Coming, Lynnette
Hosanna means: an intense imperative cry to God translated "Save Now"
byColumbia Encyclopedia: and Bible Concordance following-
Hosanna (hozan'?) [Heb.,=save now; Psalm 118], an intensified imperative, a cry, addressed to God, particularly used in the Feast of Tabernacles, when prayers for rain were offered. In the New Testament the crowd shouted it when Jesus entered Jerusalem on Palm Sunday. It is used as an acclamation in Christian worship, e.g., in the Sanctus.
The Greek form of the Hebrew phrase hoshana, "hosanna" was the term used by the people to acclaim Jesus on his entry into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday. In Psalm 118:25, it is translated "save now" and, as in the gospels, is followed by the phrase "Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord." Psalm 118 was used liturgically at the Feast of Tabernacles, and verse 25 was the cue for the waving of the palm branches.
