Palm Sunday

Image from

The King of the Jews
Rides into town.
No galloping steed;
No golden crown.

He sits on a colt,
A donkey's foal--
An odd way to reach
His kingly goal.

No army attends
This head of state.
How soon will he kill
All those we hate?

The children adore--
They sing his praise.
The leaders deplore
Such bold displays.

They'll see that he's dead
Within a week.
It shouldn't be hard--
They've heard he's meek.

They'll lie and they'll kill--
His death their prize--
But little they know...
This king will rise!

His hour's not yet
But soon, the news:
He's Lord over all;
And King of Jews.

Jesus Enters Jerusalem:
They brought the donkey and the colt and placed their cloaks on them, and he sat on them.
A very large crowd spread their cloaks on the road. Others cut branches from the trees and spread them on the road. The crowds that went ahead of him and those following kept shouting, “Hosanna to the Son of David! Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord! Hosanna in the highest!” (Matthew 21:7-9 NET)
