#109: Ride On! Ride On in Majesty!

Standard

(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)

This is a hymn I don’t even remember singing. Does anyone reading this and listening recognize this song. It is actually quite a good one.

1

Ride on” ride on in majesty!

Hark! all the tribes hosanna cry;

O Savior meek, pursue Thy road

With palms and scattered garments strowed.

2

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.

3

Ride on! ride on in majesty!

The winged squadrons of the sky

Look down with sad and wond’ring eyes

To see th’approaching sacrifice.

4

Ride on! ride on in majesty!

In lowly pomp ride on to die;

Bow Thy meek head to mrotal pain,

Then take, O God, Thy pow’r and reign.
