From Bethlehem to Nazareth,

     from Jordan to Jericho,

     from Bethany to Jerusalem,

     from then to now,

Come, Lord Jesus

To heal the sick,

     to mend the brokenhearted,

    to comfort the disturbed,

     to disturb the comfortable,

     to cleanse the temple,

     to liberate faith from convention,

Come, Lord Jesus

To carry the cross,

     to lead the way,

     to shoulder the sin of the world

      and take it away,

come, Lord Jesus.


     to this place,

     to us,

come, Lord Jesus. Amen.

OPENING MUSIC: “Hosanna, Loud Hosanna” #278 UMH


Almighty God,

on this day your Son Jesus Christ entered the holy city of Jerusalem and was proclaimed King by those who spread their garments and palm branches along his way. Let those branches be for us signs of his victory, and grant that we who bear them in his name may ever hail him as our Lord, and follow him in the way that leads to eternal his name, we pray. Amen.
