Uses: Palm Sunday
Scripture: Matthew 21:1-11; John 12:12-19
The bitter and the sweet are mingled together in this dramatic presentation for Palm Sunday services. This singular anthem stands at the crossroads of the triumph of Christ's entry into Jerusalem, while at the same time looking past the cheering crowds to the jeering mob of Good Friday. The music is filled with power as it slowly delivers its message. Creative, sometimes stark choral treatments help paint the picture of the Savior's journey to the cross.
