Spiritual Question #1
How is THE PALM SUNDAY STORY related to APOCALYPTIC Themes?

HYMN     Hosanna, Loud Hosanna

V1: Hosanna, loud hosanna the little children sang;
through pillared court and temple the lovely anthem rang.
To Jesus, who had blessed them, close folded to his breast,
the children sang their praises, the simplest and the best.

V2: From Olivet they followed mid an exultant crowd
the victory palm branch waving, and chanting clear and loud.
The Lord of earth and heaven, rode on in lowly state,
nor scorned that little children, should on his bidding wait.

V3: "Hosanna in the highest!" That ancient song we sing
for Christ is our Redeemer, the Lord of heaven, our King.
O may we ever praise him with heart and life and voice,
and in his blissful presence eternally rejoice.

CLOSING HYMN         Jesus Keep Me Near the Cross

V1: Jesus, keep me near the Cross;
There a precious fountain,

Free to all — a healing stream —
Flows from Calvary's mountain.

Refrain: In the cross, in the cross, Be my glory ever,
V2: Till my raptured soul shall find Rest beyond the river.

V2: Near the cross, a trembling soul,
love and mercy found me;
There the bright and morning Star
shed its beams around me.

Refrain

V3: Near the cross! O Lamb of God,
Bring its scenes before me;
Help me walk from day to day
With its shadow o'er me.

Refrain
