Paving the Way


Two thousand years, or so, ago

Jerusalem rejoiced

for all the future hopes they had

at last were being voiced.


The King had ridden into town;

a donkey was His ride.

They laid their clothes before Him and

"Hosanna!" they all cried.


To make His travel smoother, they

put palms along His way.

To them, these branches symbolized

a victory that day.


They hoped that He would free them from

the Romans' rule for good.

It's true, He came to free them, but

they all misunderstood.


They had it wrong when He once asked

"Who do you say I am?"

They all were thinking lion when

He came to be a lamb.


When He was crucified, then rose,

there was no gleeful throng.

They thought their hopes were ended, and

Thank God that they were wrong.


The King for which they paved the way

with branches where He trod

had paved the way for all our souls

to reconcile with God.


We just began to have a chance

to enter Heaven's gate.

The King has paved the way for us,

so let us celebrate.
