He sits with quiet, noble calm
As power radiates throughout the Universe
Eternal life pulses in worship all about
Love for His own, even remnant Jacob,
Countless angels in purest devotion
Remnant of mankind from the small earth wears crowns of humility.
As the donkey carried Him faithfully
The gentle King received their praise
And wept over His Jerusalem
City of the Great King, city without understanding
In tragic rebellion
Stubborn defiance by foolish leaders
Greed out of control in merchants;
But some in the crowds could truly see
Some in the cheering numbers could hear and begin to grasp,
The jubilant in celebration,
The few who understood dropped to their knees
Bowed low in honor as He passed by.
The Great King misunderstood by a generation
Betrayed by the realms of power
The same treachery that lives in America now.
Yet, in the wisdom of God seeds of knowledge to be carried by a few here,
A few there
Would germinate in hearts and spirits
Would sprout and grow in time
A tree much greater than seen by Daniel in Babylon
All the birds of the nations beneath its branches,
All the creatures of the world protected
Gathered beneath its massive branches as heavenly wings;
A rock becomes a great mountain
Fills the earth for a thousand generations
Fills the entire earth destined for such,
Even Mount Zion throne of the Mighty King.
