WELCOME  by Martha

HYMN  Click and join in or listen: 

Ride on, ride on in majesty

1 Ride on, ride on in majesty!

     Hark! all the tribes hosanna cry;

   O Savior meek, pursue your road

     with palms and scattered garments strowed.

 

2 Ride on, ride on in majesty!

     In lowly pomp ride on to die:

   O Christ, your triumphs now begin

     o'er captive death and conquered sin.

 

3 Ride on, ride on in majesty!

     The winged squadrons of the sky

   look down with sad and wond'ring eyes

     to see th'approaching sacrifice.

 

4 Ride on, ride on in majesty!

     Your last and fiercest strife is nigh;

   the Father on his sapphire throne

     expects his own anointed Son.

 

5 Ride on, ride on in majesty!

     In lowly pomp ride on to die;

   bow your meek head to mortal pain,

     then take, O God, your pow'r and reign.

COLLECT for Palm Sunday

True and humble King,

Hailed by the crowd as Messiah:

Grant us the faith to know you and love you,

That we may be found beside you

On the way of the cross,

Which is the path of glory.

Amen.
