Composed by CLC pastor Frank Gannt, this hymn fits the meter and tune of Duke Street. Better known as TLH #200 I Know that My Redeemer Lives.

A HYMN FOR PALM SUNDAY

1

“Blessed is He who comes to save!”
“Hosanna in the highest, Lord!”
With palms and cloaks the people pave
The road to death, though not abhorred.

2

In servant’s form He travels on;
No trumpets sound for God’s own King.
Forward He goes ‘til vict’ry’s won.
“Blessed is He,” we join to sing.

3
A sinner’s cross becomes His throne,
A wreath of twisted thorns His crown;
The sins of all become His own.
“Hosanna!” Let the hymn resound.

4

What hidden pow’r! What selfless might!
The Son of God rides forth to die.
The pow’rs of hell He puts to flight.
“Hosanna to our King!” we cry.
