The lyrics are copyright so should not be reproduced here. But they are currently unavailable elsewhere. A rough outline is:
Come to Jerusalem, rejoicing before him,
Greet him with loud hosannas,
Bow down before him.

1 All peoples clap your hands,
Cry out to your Maker.
God is the Lord of all
O tremble and fear him.

2 God mounts the throne with joy
With blaring of trumpets!
Sing praise to God almighty
King of all nations.

3 God is the king of all the nations
O praise him.
Praise him with your skill,
Enthroned in his temple.

4 People and princes come
In homage to meet him.
God of the mighty one,
The world is his kingdom.
