Salem's mighty King

He whose smile reflecting light

Published in 2 hymnals

Representative Text

Strew the way with palm leaves,
To the holy city;
Children in the temple,
Make the arches ring;
Strew the way with palm leaves,
Shout aloud Hosanna,
Bow the knee before Him,
Salem's mighty King.

1 He whose smile reflecting light,
Turn'd to wine the water bright;
He who on the stormy deep
Hush'd the rolling waves to sleep;
Cleans'd the leper by a word,
Heal'd the sick, the deaf restored;
He who bless'd the loaves, and fed
Hungry souls with living bread. [Chorus]

2 He who touch'd the sable bier,
Dried the childless widow's tear;
He who then but gently spoke,
And her son to life awoke;
Why rebuke the joyous song,
Bursting from a grateful throng?
Cease to chide the gath'ring crowd,
Or the stones will cry aloud. [Chorus]
