PALM SUNDAY – John 12

In joyful pageantry they came that day

For they had seen you raise up Lazarus

No one but God returns the dead, they say

But Pharisees took this as hazardous

 

Palm Branches waived in celebrating You

They shouted, “Save us! You are sent from God!”

Proclaimed You King to rule and to subdue

The fuller meaning held in deep façade

 

As honored kings on youthful donkeys ride

You took the path that led to your life’s call

One moment they all worshiped at your side

The next they ran abandoning it all

 

You knew the intense suffering you faced

A celebration ushered in your grace.
