185. Ride On! Ride On in Majesty!

1 Ride on! Ride on in majesty!
Hark! all the tribes hosanna cry;
Thy humble beast pursues his road
With palms and scattered garments strowed.

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

3 Ride on! Ride on in majesty!
The winged squadrons of the sky
Look down with sad and wond'ring eyes
To see the approaching sacrifice.

4 Ride on! Ride on in majesty!
Thy last and fiercest strife is nigh;
Bow Thy meek head to mortal pain,
Then take, O Christ, Thy pow'r, and reign.

Amen.

5 Ride on, ride on in majesty!
In lowly pomp ride on to die.
Bow your meek head to mortal pain,
Then take, O Christ, your power and reign.
