To whom the lips of children Made sweet hosannas ring.

You are the king of Israel And David’s royal Son,
Now in the Lord’s name coming, Our King and Blessed One. Refrain

The company of angels Are praising you on high;
Creation and all mortal In chorus make reply. Refrain

The multitude of pilgrims With palms before you went,
Our praise and prayer and anthems Before you we present Refrain

To you, before your Passion, They sang their hymns of praise.
To you, now high exalted, Our melody we raise Refrain

Great author of all goodness, O good and gracious King Refrain

THE PRAYER OF THE DAY
P: We pray.
C:  Blessed are You, Almighty God, King of the universe. You have poured out upon us Your never-ending love by giving Your Son, Jesus Christ, into death for us.  You sent Him as the humble servant King, to bring peace with You to our world. Give us grace to share in His suffering and death so that we may be united with Him in His resurrection. He lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.

HYMN Ride On, Ride On in Majesty
Ride on! ride on in majesty! Hark! all the tribes hosanna cry;
O Saviour meek, pursue thy road
with palms and scattered garments strowed.

Ride on! ride on in majesty! In lowly pomp ride on to die;
O Christ, thy triumphs now begin o’er captive death and conquered sin.

Ride on! ride on in majesty! The angel-squadrons of the sky
look down with sad and wondering eyes to see the approaching sacrifice.

Ride on! ride on in majesty! Thy last and fiercest strife is nigh;
the Father on his sapphire throne expects his own anointed Son.

Ride on! ride on in majesty! In lowly pomp ride on to die;
bow thy meek head to mortal pain,
then take, O God, thy power, and reign.
