A HYMN FOR TODAY – Triumphal Entrance

A HYMN FOR TODAY – Triumphal Entrance

“Hosanna, King!” the crowd resounds;
Their branches pave the dusty ground.
Messiah wears no robe or crown,
Yet all the multitudes bow down.
This Prophet-King from Galilee
Is on the road to Calvary.

“Our Lord! The King!” the host resounds;
Their branches sweep the golden ground.
Messiah claims His robe and crown;
Angelic multitudes bow down.
The risen Lamb in victory
Has conquered death at Calvary.

“Our King returns!” the trump resounds,
And angel voices shake the ground.
The saints receive their robes and crowns
As at the throne all men bow down.
The Son of God triumphantly
Will lead us home through Calvary.

8.8.8.8 – S. Jason Hardin, 2002

#219 in Psalms, Hymns, and Spiritual Songs, 2012

TRIUMPHAL ENTRANCE depicts three “triumphal entrances” of Scripture: Christ’s triumphal entry into Jerusalem, His subsequent entry into heaven, and our entrance into heaven in His footsteps. (Matthew 21:1-11; 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18; Revelation 2:10; 3:5; 7:9-17)
