PASSION SONG (The Rogue’s March)

1.  Jesus comes to Jerusalem: a city of us and a city go them.

Roman leaders and Sadducees struggle for power against Pharisees.

CHORUS:  Ride on, Jesus.  Ride on, Jesus.  Loud hosannas are all you hear even though you suspect your death is near.  Loud hosannas are all you hear even though you suspect your death is near.

2. Jesus rides through the streets of town.  The powerful people are now moved to frown.

Here the greatest and there the least cheer for their Savior on his borrowed beast.

CHORUS:  Ride on, Jesus.  Ride on, Jesus.  Loud hosannas are all you hear even though you suspect your death is near.  Loud hosannas are all you hear even though you suspect your death is near.

3. Jesus rides over palm and cloak as placed for his journey by adoring folk.

Temple leaders begin to sweat.  This Nazarene is becoming a threat.

CHORUS:  Ride on, Jesus.  Ride on, Jesus.  Loud hosannas are all you hear even though you suspect your death is near.  Loud hosannas are all you hear even though you suspect your death is near.

4. Jesus, do not forget the way.  Yes, you will repeat it another day

Shouldering your crude cross of wood:  People’s reward for a person who’s good.

CHORUS:  Ride on, Jesus.  Ride on, Jesus.  Loud hosannas are all you hear even though you suspect your death is near.  Loud hosannas are all you hear even though you suspect your death is near.
