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.
