Psalm 118 renewed — Duncan Wilson, UK

For Palm Sunday

Open now the gates to God’s holy place.
We will go in and give thanks to our God.

The foundation stone which the builders set aside
has proved the most important of all.

This was achieved by God
and how wonderful to behold.

Today celebrates God’s victory.
Rejoice in it.

God bless the One who comes
in the name of the holiest.
From this holy place,
we bless you.

So with hosannas in your hands,
begin the festivities
and march around the altar.

This way, we give thanks to our God
whose love knows no limits.
