Many in the crowd spread their garments
And others strew branches from trees,
For they knew their Lord and King
Would come along that day.
They praised God for the son of David
And sang Hosanna in the highest!
Even now in this present day,
We should do the same.
The King who rode astride a colt
Through the palm-strewn way,
Will enter our hearts today,
So welcome Him right away.
On this day we shout our praise,
O, let us not delay;
That Christ who rode on the palm-strewn path
Will come into your hearts and mine.
