Songs & Scripture: “Hosanna (Praise is Rising)” (Brenton Brown and Paul Baloche)

"They brought the donkey and the colt and put on them their cloaks, and he sat on them....And the crowds that went before him and that followed him were shouting, "Hosanna to the Son of David! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord! Hosanna in the highest!" ~Matthew 21:7, 9  (Photo credit: Andreas Krappweis)

I remember singing this song in youth group growing up, but have recently come back to it. ‘Cause when we see You, we find strength to face the day is still the cry of my heart.

After a time of singing my heart out to God, or glimpsing Him through nature, or reading a familiar Bible passage anew as if God wrote it exactly for me, or someone’s unexpected kindness, or a story of redemption, or another amazing piece of evidence of God’s existence or the validity of the Bible, that’s when I find strength to face another day.
