So they brought the colt to Jesus
and put their cloaks over it.
And he sat on it.
Many people spread their cloaks on the road,
and others spread leafy branches
that they had cut from the fields.
Those preceding him as well as those following kept crying out:
Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!”
Knowing us better than we know ourselves, knowing all the crummy things we do to one another, he still comes to give himself for love of us.
