Meridian Avenue Baptist Church

A triumphant entry was not denied,

Upon a donkey’s colt He did ride,

A journey made to turn the tide,

Against death He would preside.

Upon a cross He was placed,

Nails in hands and feet to debase,

Laid in a tomb in great haste,

Jewish leaders, their joy misplaced.

Three days passed, the women went,

To anoint His body, their intent,

Within the tomb His body absent,

A risen Savior, as God had meant.

His father’s will He did obey,

God’s loving grace He did convey,

His sacrifice would ultimately display,

Death’s hold on us has fallen away.
