280. Ride On, Ride On in Majesty

1 Ride on, ride on, in majesty!
Hark! All the tribes hosanna cry.
0 Savior meek, pursue Thy road,
With palms and scattered garments strowed.

2 Ride on, ride on, in majesty!
In lowly pomp ride on to die.
0 Christ, Thy triumphs now begin
O'er captive death and conquered sin.

3 Ride on, ride on, in majesty!
The angel armies of the sky
Look down with sad and wondering eyes
To see th'approaching Sacrifice.

4 Ride on, ride on, in majesty!
Thy last and fiercest strife is nigh;
The Father on His sapphire throne
Expects His own anointed Son.

5 Ride on, ride on, in majesty!
In lowly pomp ride on to die.
Bow Thy meek head to mortal pain,
Then take, 0 Christ, Thy pow'r and reign.
