To the only Giver of life, our Maker
The gates are open wide
We worship You
He bought us with His blood,
The cross has overcome
We worship You
Shout Hosanna He rose from the grave!
Come and lift Him up, Hosanna!
Death could not hold Him down
So let the saints cry out,
we worship You
the stone away
The same power alive in us today
King Jesus we call upon Your name
No other name
Shout Hosanna - In the Bible [Verses & Devotional]
The song Shout Hosanna by Passion is a powerful anthem of praise and thanksgiving to our King Jesus. The lyrics invite us to lift our voices to worship and glorify God for his love, salvation and resurrection power. This song draws inspiration from various passages of the Bible that help us to understand the significance of the message being conveyed.
In verse one, the lyrics refer to Jesus as the "King of glory and light" which echoes Psalm 24:7-10 where it says, "Lift up your heads, you gates; be lifted up, you ancient doors, that the King of glory may come in...He is the King of glory." The gates are open wide, inviting all of us to come and worship Him.
Verse two reminds us that Jesus bought us with His blood, and He is our Savior. 1 Peter 1:18-19 states that, "For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed...but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect." The cross has overcome, and therefore we can worship God confidently, knowing that our sins and transgressions have been forgiven.
The chorus urges us to shout Hosanna because Jesus saves, and He rose from the grave. Matthew 28:6 proclaims, "He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay." Therefore, we can lift Him up and exalt His name with joy and thanksgiving.
Verse three calls on us to let the lost be found, forgiven and redeemed. Jesus died and rose again for all people, and through Him, we can receive eternal life. John 3:16 reminds us that, "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life."
Finally, the bridge reminds us that the same power that rolled the stone away is alive in us today through the Holy Spirit of God. Romans 8:11 states that, "And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies because of his Spirit who lives in you." It's in Jesus name that we call upon His power, and there is no other name that we can call on for salvation.
In conclusion, the song Shout Hosanna by Passion is a declaration of our faith in Jesus Christ, our Lord, and Savior. It encourages us to praise Him, worship Him, and proclaim His goodness to others. Let us lift up His name and testify about what He has done for us. May this song inspire us to walk in the power of the Holy Spirit and be a light to those around us. Amen.
