"The Triumphal Entry"
As they approached Jerusalem and came to Bethphage and Bethany at the
Mount of Olives, Jesus sent two of his disciples, saying to them,
"Go to the village ahead of you, and just as you enter it, you will find a colt
tied there, which no one has ever ridden. Untie it and bring it here.
If anyone asks you, 'Why are you doing this?' tell him,
'The Lord needs it and will send it back here shortly.'"
They went and found a colt outside in the street, tied at a doorway.
As they untied it, some people standing there asked, "What are you doing,
untying that colt?" They answered as Jesus had told them to, and the people
let them go. When they brought the colt to Jesus and threw their cloaks over
it, he sat on it. Many people spread their cloaks on the road, while others
spread branches they had cut in the fields. Those who went ahead
and those who followed shouted,
"Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!"
"Blessed is the coming kingdom of our father David!"
"Hosanna in the highest!"
The stone the builders rejected
has become the capstone;
the LORD has done this,
and it is marvelous in our eyes.
This is the day the LORD has made;
let us rejoice and be glad in it.
O LORD, save us;
O LORD, grant us success.
Blessed is he who comes in the name of the LORD.
From the house of the LORD we bless you.
The LORD is God,
and he has made his light shine upon us.
With boughs in hand, join in the festal procession
up to the horns of the altar.

The Triumphal Entry
This instrumental was inspired from the Gospel of Mark, chapter 11.
As Jesus was going up to Jerusalem, he took the twelve disciples aside, and told them how the Son of Man would be
betrayed by the chief priests and the teachers of the law. How they would condemn him to death and turn him over to
the Gentiles to be mocked and flogged and crucified, and on the third day he would be raised to life!
As they approached Jerusalem, Jesus rode in on a colt that had never been ridden, and they threw their cloaks over it,
and many people spread their cloaks on the road, while others spread branches they had cut in the fields. Those who
went ahead and those who followed shouted, "Hosanna! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!"
The driving force behind this song is the Djembe and Conga drums, playing together in unison using 1/8 note triplets,
(similar to the drum beats used in the theatrical show, Riverdance). The sound of strings and harmonica play melodies of
sadness and beauty; sadness, because Jesus is riding in to Jerusalem to be crucified; beauty, because through His death
on the cross our sins are completely forgiven and paid for, washed clean, white as snow! Hallelujah!
Isaiah 1:18 "Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they
shall be like wool. NIV
