He is near

Do not fear
Be of good cheer

Hosanna=Deliver-We pray now PLEASE! –Ps 116:1-2,6

Word Study
From NetBible Ps 145:18
The LORD is near to all who call upon Him; To all who call upon Him in truth.

  • near[07138] = nigh(in place, kindred or time), approachable, allied, at hand
  • sincerely and truth[0571] = firmness, faithfulness, sureness, reliability, honesty
    *from [0539] = to be certain He will answer

From NetBible Ps 145:19 and Ps 116:6
The Lord protects the simple (childlike); I was brought low [humbled and discouraged], and He saved/delivered me. –Ps 116:6 AMP
He will fulfill the desire of those who fear and worship Him [with awe-inspired reverence and obedience]; He also will hear their cry and will save/deilver them. –Ps 145:19 AMP

  • deliver[03467] = to save, to be liberated, to give victory to
    *from a primitive root, Greek [5614] = hosanna

From NetBible Jn 12:13

  • hosanna[5614] =
    From [03467] = to be liberated, saved, delivered, victorious
    and [04994] = we pray now please
  • The expression ῾Ωσαννά (Jwsanna, literally in Hebrew, “O Lord, save”) in the quotation from Ps 118:25-26 was probably by this time a familiar liturgical expression of praise, on the order of “Hail to the king,” although both the underlying Aramaic and Hebrew expressions meant “O Lord, save us.” As in Mark 11:9 the introductory ὡσαννά is followed by the words of Ps 118:25, εὐλογημένος ὁ ἐρχόμενος ἐν ὀνόματι κυρίου (euloghmeno” Jo ercomeno” en onomati kuriou), although in the Fourth Gospel the author adds for good measure καὶ ὁ βασιλεὺς τοῦ ᾿Ισραήλ (kai Jo basileu” tou Israhl). In words familiar to every Jew, the author is indicating that at this point every messianic expectation is now at the point of realization. It is clear from the words of the psalm shouted by the crowd that Jesus is being proclaimed as messianic king. See E. Lohse, TDNT9:682-84.* Hosannais an Aramaic expression that literally means, “help, I pray,” or “save, I pray.” By Jesus’ time it had become a strictly liturgical formula of praise, however, and was used as an exclamation of praise to God.* A quotation from Ps 118:25-26.
