145. Ride on! ride on in majesty

L.M.

St. Drostane:

John B. Dykes, 1862

Winchester New:

Hamburg, 1690

Henry H. Milman, 1827;

Alt.

Ride on! ride on in majesty!

Hark! all the tribes hosanna cry;

O Savior meek, pursue thy road

With palms and scattered garments strewed.

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.

Ride on! ride on in majesty!

The angel armies of the sky

Look down with sad and wondering eyes

To see the approaching sacrifice.

Ride on! ride on in majesty!

Thy last and fiercest strife is nigh;

The Father on his sapphire throne

Expects his own anointed Son.

Ride on! ride on in majesty!

In lowly pomp ride on to die;

Bow thy meek head to mortal pain,

Then take, O God, thy power, and reign.
