"Every song I have translated is well translated, the one who works on the very difficult songs with me is Dee Shipman. I know her telephone number by heart, and her fax. It goes back and forth - 'No! I don't like this word!' And she comes back and says 'Because you don't understand English!' So I have to convince her and she has to convince me, and the rapport is fantastic." 

- Charles Aznavour

Hosanna
(Dee Shipman / Charles Aznavour)

When the midnight came
Mary suffered pain
Then her holy child was born
The son of God.....

People gathered round
With a joyful sound
Hallelujah, jubilation!
Praise the lord of all creation!

Hosanna
Hosanna
Mary, to you the people run
Longing to see your infant son
Born of your flesh, 
Conceived of pure love....
Hosanna
Hosanna
Jesus will be our king of kings
Lord of the Jews, all men and things
Of earth below 
And Heaven above

On the morning air
Mary said a prayer
With the people kneeling round
The son of God......

Mary held the child
Baby Jesus smiled
At the humble congregation
And their gifts of adoration

Hosanna
Hosanna
Mary, our new born king you hold
Now let the joyful news be told
Sung to the towns 
The hills and seashore
Hosanna
Hosanna
Ring all the bells, let oboes play
Jesus is born, and from today
His love divine will live evermore!
