They spread their cloaks and palm branches on the road, and shouted, “Hosanna to the Son of David! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord! Hosanna in the highest!”
Jesus, the King of All, entered Jerusalem. He fulfilled the word of the prophet that said, “Behold, your king is coming to you; righteous and having salvation is he, humble and mounted on a donkey,” (Zechariah 9:9, ESV).
Hosanna, loud hosanna,
The little children sang;
Through pillared court and temple
The lovely anthem rang.
To Jesus, who had blessed them,
Close folded to his breast,
the children sang their praises,
The simplest and the best.
— “Hosanna, Loud Hosanna,” CW 130:1.
Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord!
Please pray for the Christians murdered in Egypt today.
