     28 And when he had thus spoken, he went before, ascending up to Jerusalem. 29 And it came to pass, when he was come nigh to Bethphage and Bethany, at the mount called the mount of Olives, he sent two of his disciples, 30 Saying, Go ye into the village over against you; in the which at your entering ye shall find a colt tied, whereon yet never man sat: loose him, and bring him hither. 31 And if any man ask you, Why do ye loose him? thus shall ye say unto him, Because the Lord hath need of him. 32 And they that were sent went their way, and found even as he had said unto them. 33 And as they were loosing the colt, the owners thereof said unto them, Why loose ye the colt? 34 And they said, The Lord hath need of him. 35 And they brought him to Jesus: and they cast their garments upon the colt, and they set Jesus thereon. 36 And as he went, they spread their clothes in the way. 37 And when he was come nigh, even now at the descent of the mount of Olives, the whole multitude of the disciples began to rejoice and praise God with a loud voice for all the mighty works that they had seen; 38 Saying, Blessed be the King that cometh in the name of the Lord: peace in heaven, and glory in the highest. 39 And some of the Pharisees from among the multitude said unto him, Master, rebuke thy disciples. 40 And he answered and said unto them, I tell you that, if these should hold their peace, the stones would immediately cry out.

     41 And when he was come near, he beheld the city, and wept over it, 42 Saying, If thou hadst known, even thou, at least in this thy day, the things which belong unto thy peace! but now they are hid from thine eyes. 43 For the days shall come upon thee, that thine enemies shall cast a trench about thee, and compass thee round, and keep thee in on every side, 44 And shall lay thee even with the ground, and thy children within thee; and they shall not leave in thee one stone upon another; because thou knewest not the time of thy visitation. 45 And he went into the temple, and began to cast out them that sold therein, and them that bought; 46 Saying unto them, It is written, My house is the house of prayer: but ye have made it a den of thieves. 47 And he taught daily in the temple. But the chief priests and the scribes and the chief of the people sought to destroy him, 48 And could not find what they might do: for all the people were very attentive to hear him.(KJV)

The Royal Banners Forward Go — Organ Audio

1. The royal banners forward go; 
The cross shines forth in mystic glow 
Where He in flesh, our flesh who made, 
our sentence bore, our ransom paid; 

2. Where deep for us the spear was dyed, 
Life’s torrent rushing from His side. 
To wash us in that precious flood 
Where mingled water flowed and blood. 

3. Fulfilled is all that David told 
In true prophetic song of old; 
Amidst the nations, God, saith he, 
Hath reigned and triumphed from the tree. 

4. O Tree of beauty, Tree of light, 
O Tree with royal purple dight; 
Elect, on whose triumphal breast 
Those holy limbs should find their rest; 

5. On whose dear arms, so widely flung, 
The weight of this world’s ransom hung 
The price of humankind to pay 
And spoil the spoiler of his prey. 

6. O Cross, our one reliance, hail! 
So may thy power with us avail 
To give new virtue to the saint 
And pardon to the penitent. 

7. To Thee, eternal Three in One, 
Let homage meet by all be done 
Whom by the cross Thou dost restore, 
Preserve, and govern evermore.
