     1 And when they drew nigh unto Jerusalem, and were come to Bethphage, unto the mount of Olives, then sent Jesus two disciples, 2 Saying unto them, Go into the village over against you, and straightway ye shall find an ass tied, and a colt with her: loose them, and bring them unto me. 3 And if any man say ought unto you, ye shall say, The Lord hath need of them; and straightway he will send them. 4 All this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying, 5 Tell ye the daughter of Sion, Behold, thy King cometh unto thee, meek, and sitting upon an ass, and a colt the foal of an ass. 6 And the disciples went, and did as Jesus commanded them, 7 And brought the ass, and the colt, and put on them their clothes, and they set him thereon. 8 And a very great multitude spread their garments in the way; others cut down branches from the trees, and strowed them in the way. 9 And the multitudes that went before, and that followed, cried, saying, Hosanna to the son of David: Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord; Hosanna in the highest. 10 And when he was come into Jerusalem, all the city was moved, saying, Who is this? 11 And the multitude said, This is Jesus the prophet of Nazareth of Galilee.

     12 And Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast out all them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves, 13 And said unto them, It is written, My house shall be called the house of prayer; but ye have made it a den of thieves. 14 And the blind and the lame came to him in the temple; and he healed them. 15 And when the chief priests and scribes saw the wonderful things that he did, and the children crying in the temple, and saying, Hosanna to the son of David; they were sore displeased, 16 And said unto him, Hearest thou what these say? And Jesus saith unto them, Yea; have ye never read, Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings thou hast perfected praise? 17 And he left them, and went out of the city into Bethany; and he lodged there.(KJV)

1. Ride on, ride on, in majesty! 
Hark! all the tribes hosanna cry. 
O Savior meek, pursue Thy road, 
With palms and scattered garments strowed. 

2. 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. 

3. Ride on, ride on, in majesty! 
The angel armies of the sky 
Look down with sad and wondering eyes 
To see the approaching Sacrifice. 

4. Ride on, ride on, in majesty! 
Thy 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 Thy meek head to mortal pain. 
Then take, O Christ, Thy power and reign.
