*Pueri Hebraeorum vestimenta prosternebant in via et clamabant dicentes: Hosanna Filio David, benedictus qui venit in nomine Domini. 

The Hebrew children spread their garments in the way, and cried out, saying: Hosanna to the Son of David: blessed is He that cometh in the Name of the Lord.


**Hosanna to the Son of David. Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.
Blessed be the King of Israel. Peace in heaven, and glory in the highest places. Hosanna in the highest heavens.
