For Palm Sunday

He entered Mt. Zion mounted on a donkey
to throngs shouting adoration.
Hosanna! Hosanna!
Blessed is he who comes in the name of Lord!

His path cloaked in palms and garments 
while hate cloaked hearts of the religious.
Save us! Save us!
Hooray for him who has come to conquer!

Crowds clamored and sinners sang praise
as desperation drove jubilation.
Hosanna! Save us!
Praises to him who is sent by Jehovah!

Good Shepherd entering den of wolves
and wolf-ish hearts attired as sheep.
Save us! Hosanna!
He is the one who has come bearing God's name!

Tear-stained eyes for wayward chicks
whose rousings would rescind to death cries.
Save! Save! Save!
Honor and glory to the Redeemer!

Milennia later, palms up in surrender and hearts laid low,
we bow before the King, the Hero who came for us.
Hosanna! Save us!
We worship You, Jesus, who has come to our rescue!
