Hosanna, Loud Hosannas
Leeman, Barbara and David
“In recent years we have had the privilege in life to become parents. And, though we have not worked as extensively as many in childrens music, lately we have spent more time writing and reflecting on the subject since we now have two little daughters of our own. It is particularly unusual, given the fact that much childrens literature today is story-driven, highly involved, complex, mystical and requiring such intellectual commitment, that in comparison, much current childrens theological teaching, songs and even worship to Almighty God can be so simplistic and shallow rather than telling the ascendant and beautiful story of Christ. It is refreshing to see a book of hymns selected for children to sing that tell the gospel and teach complex biblical truths in a timeless way. Our fellow countryman, C.S. Lewis, said, No book is really worth reading at the age of ten which is not equally (and often far more) worth reading at the age of fifty. We believe the same is true of songs and singing. We are so excited about the publication of this hymnbook for children. Our prayer is that our children will be singing theologically-rich hymns such as the ones found here long after we are gone and will continue to pass them on from generation to generation.”See All

Hosanna, Loud Hosanna is a hymnal, it is a textbook, and it is a devotional book. Find indexes and samples at StudentHymnal.com. 115 essential hymns that every child should sing. Each hymn melody and text has on the opposite page biographical information of the author of the text and the composer of the tune. In addition there are suggestions of what you should consider as you sing this hymn. These devotional thoughts bring great meaning to these wonderful, timeless texts. Spread throughout the book are thirteen paintings from The Art Institute in Chicago, the National Gallery of Art, and the Bridgeman Art Library that were chosen as reflections of hymn texts. Beautiful calligraphy by artist, Timothy Botts, gracefully divides the hymns under three broad sections of the Church Year, the Attributes of God, and Our Response.
This book was written for use in worship chapels at Christian Schools, children's ministries of churches, and family worship. An accompaniment book and recording of all hymns will be released in Spring 2015. Please visit www.studenthymnal.com.
