They cried welcome with words of Hosannah.
Palm fronds were strewn before his way.
He came not in a chariot or on horseback.
But on a lowly donkey who walked the way.
Enthusiastic crowds hailed him as blessed.
Those same voices only five days later.
Shouted Crucify Him - Crucify Him
They demanded a murderer in his place
The religious leaders manipulated the day.
As they are guilty of this same very day
A capricious easily led crowd who swayed.
From a rapturous welcome for their messiah.
Condemned him to death with the same breath.
