Palm Sunday

Suddenly, regally, here comes your king,
    Riding a donkey instead of a horse.
Make way before him! Praise him and sing,
    Waving palm fronds as you follow his course.

Praise be to Yah, who remembered our pain!
    Long live the king! Long live David's great son!
Break forth in dancing! Messiah will reign!
    After your trouble, your savior has come!

The next day a great multitude that had come to the feast, when they heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem, took branches of palm trees and went out to meet Him, and cried out: "Hosanna! 'Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord! 'The King of Israel!" Then Jesus, when He had found a young donkey, sat on it; as it is written: "Fear not, daughter of Zion; Behold, your King is coming, Sitting on a donkey's colt."
--John 12:12-15, NKJV
