“Please Lord, please save us. Please, Lord, please give us success.” (Psalm 118:25 )
The Hebrew word, “hoshi’a na,” is translated in Greek as “(h)osanna.” In English, we known it as “hosanna.” The original intent of the scripture is “Save!” It is viewed as a plea for help. It’s as if we were yelling “stop!” at someone about to throw a firecracker at us. We use this when we understand the potential impact of something about to happen, and as an act of surrender. In moments like this, we realize we cannot save ourselves and we need to connect to our source of security quickly. In the firecracker example, that security is the person with the firecracker in their hand. In our spiritual lives though, that security is in God. In its purest form, this is worship as we feel we have to come to the end of ourselves and we need God to intervene.

2.Hosanna Means "Save, Please!"
Throughout different translations and edits, the original plea to “please, save us!” changed to a proclamation of “Salvation! Thank you!”. We read above in Psalms 118:25 , “Please, Lord, please save us. Please give us success.” This is the only time this plea is used. Right after that, in verse 26, there is a shift from concern to confidence. Verse 26 says,
“Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord.” This is a great example of faith and a demonstration of the shift from Old Testament to New Testament. Today, we hear songs like the ones described in the opening and read scriptures in the New Testament where “hosanna” is used more as a term of adoration and praise.

original intent of the scripture is “Save!”
It is viewed as a plea for help. It’s as if

we realize we cannot save ourselves and
we need to connect to our source of

The first time “hosanna” is used in the
New Testament is in Matthew 21:9 , for
Jesus’ triumphant entrance to Jerusalem
as King. Verse 9 says, “Jesus was in the
center of the procession, and the people all
around him were shouting, ‘Praise God
(hosanna) for the Son of David!’ Blessings
on the one who comes in the name of the
Lord! Praise God (hosanna) in highest
heaven !” (emphasis added) Many people
view this as a proclamation of a new
salvation. Palm branches were placed in
Jesus’ path and marked the beginning of
what we celebrate as Palm Sunday. This
occurred before Jesus was arrested on
Holy Thursday and His crucifixion on
Good Friday.

If you read the NLT translation as quoted
above, you will miss the references to
“hosanna.” The NLT translates “hosanna”
to “Praise God.” To see these, you will
need to use other translations like the
KJV , or the ESV. You will find hosanna in
these scriptures in the New Testament:
Matthew 21:9 : “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 21:15 : “But when the chief
priests and the scribes saw the wonderful
things that he did, and the children crying
out in the temple, ‘Hosanna to the Son of
David!’ they were indignant.”
Mark 11:10 : “Blessed is the coming
kingdom of our father David! Hosanna in
the highest!”
John 12:13 : “So they took branches of
palm trees and went out to meet him,
crying out, ‘Hosanna! Blessed is He who
comes in the name of the Lord, even the
King of Israel!’”

If we think back to the shift from Psalms
118, verse 25 to verse 26, it is interesting
to note how the use of hosanna
changed. There was one documented
plea, and then the focus shifted to the
faith of a salvation that was to come.
Psalms 118:26 started a new era, saying,
“ Blessed is the one who comes in the
name of the Lord. ” Jesus continued this
in John 5:24 , which states, “ Very truly I
tell you, whoever hears my word and
believes him who sent me has eternal life.”
Hosanna exemplifies man’s transition
from pleading with God for action, to
thanking Him for the action taken. It
shows the true impact of Jesus’ act at
Calvary.

As you can tell, there are two completely
different uses for “hosanna." One use is
pleading for help, while the other is just
showing gratitude for what was done.
They perfectly represent two places of
spiritual well-being we all find ourselves
in. I want to emphasize that these are
two separate places. One is not better
than the other and one is not a level to
reach the other. They are just two places
that we often find ourselves. We are
either crying out to God for help, or we
are thanking God for what has been done
for us. We are in a better position, as a
result.

“Hosanna in the highest” is used when
we acknowledge Jesus for His ultimate
sacrifice and what it means for us and
mankind as a whole. This may not be
something we often say out loud, but we
can think it in our minds and feel it in our
hearts in times of worship. In your quiet
place of prayer, you may find comfort in
just saying these forms of hosanna out
loud.
The biggest takeaway from this is the
understanding that even if we are in that
place in life where we are pleading, we
should acknowledge it as a form of
worship, just like how we give praise and
thanksgiving. This mindset shift will
empower us to connect with God in
worship and prayer more often.
No matter which side of the spectrum
you are on, we can approach God
through prayer or worship the same.
When we are at that place of feeling like
we are failing or like we can’t go on, we
can plead with God, “Please, hear me!
Please, talk to me. Please, show me
something new.” This is the original use
of “hosanna.”
On the other hand, when we are
connected with God and feel like we are
overflowing, we shout praises: “Thank
you, God! You are so good! Thank you for
my life! Thank you for making a way for
me!” This is also proper use of hosanna.

God, I thank you for the times that I do
not know my next step. I thank you
because your Word says to trust you and
to acknowledge my need for you and that
you will set my paths straight. ( Proverbs
3:5-6 ) I thank you that I do not have to
know everything and that you are my
source. I thank you that you empower me
when I am connected to you. ( John 15:5 )
