Ride On

Ride on: ride on in majesty;

The palms affirm with certainty

Their claim – you are Messiah King.

The crowds join in and loudly sing.

 

Ride on; ride on – A peaceful plea -

A colt you ride symbolically.

They want a stallion and a sword

To fight a war.  No peace accord!

 

Ride on; ride on for liberty.

The charge is your insurgency.

You claim to bring the temple down;

They’ll make you wear a special crown!

 

Ride on; ride on courageously,

In growing fierce hostility.

Enraged, they hate with lawless skill;

The men in power plan to kill.

 

Ride on; ride on to Calvary

With tortured grim integrity.

Absorb the pain; repay with grace

And thus transform the human race.

 

Tune:  St. Drostane (Ride On!  Ride On in Majesty)

Alternate Tune:  Winchester New (The Baptist Shouts on Jordan’s Shore)
