Palm Sunday hymn: Ride on! (Matthew 21:1-11)– George Stuart, Australia

Liturgy of the Palms, Year A

Matthew 21:1-11

Tune: Winchester


Ride on; ride on in majesty

Yet seeking no hostility;

To ride a colt is to proclaim

That peace, compassion is your aim.


Ride on; ride on compass’nately

For victims of cruel tyranny;

The poor and outcasts need a voice;

Give hope in which they can rejoice.


Ride on; ride on courageously;

Your message of equality

Will anger priests and Roman lords;

They’ll silence you; may use their swords!


Can we ride with him here today?

Can we ride with him all the way?

For peace, compassion still remain

The ways we can advance God’s reign.
