Blessed Palm Sunday

“Rejoice greatly, O Daughter of Zion!  Shout, Daughter of Jerusalem!  See, your king comes to you, righteous and having salvation, gentle and riding on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey…

He will proclaim peace to the nations.”

— Zechariah 9:9-10 NIV1984.

“O bride of Christ, rejoice!
Exultant raise your voice
To hail the day of glory
Foretold in sacred story.
Hosanna!  Now adore him;
With praises bow before him!

“Then go your Lord to meet;
Strew palm leaves at his feet;
Your garments spread before him,
And honor and adore him.
Hosanna!  Sing the story
Of Christ, the King of glory!”

— “O Bride of Christ, Rejoice,” Christian Worship 134:1, 5.
