Blessed is the King


Blessed is the king, in the name of the Lord he draws nearer.

Scriptures fulfilling, his person and work growing clearer.

Hear the crowds sing

Their highest praise to the king.

'Glory to God' cries each cheerer.

Daughter of Zion, your king on a colt meets your gazes.

Riding in majesty, possessing power that amazes.

If wicked men

Silenced the people's voice, then

Nature would cry out his praises

Let my soul join in the praise to the king of salvation,

As he rides on to his task as our propitiation.

Setting his face

Towards the pain that brings grace

And eternal adoration.
