1.Thou art the King of Israel, thou David’s royal Son,

Who in the Lord’s name comest, the King and blessed one.

2.The company of angels are praising thee on high,     

And we with all creation in chorus make reply.

3.The people of the Hebrews with palms before thee went;

Our praise and prayer and anthems before thee we present.

4.To thee before thy Passion they sang their hymns of praise;

To thee now high exalted our melody we raise.

5.Thou didst accept their praises; accept the prayers we bring,

Who in all good delightest, thou good and gracious King.

The Collect for Palm Sunday

Holy and immortal God,
as we enter into this holy week
turn our hearts to Jerusalem,
so that united with Christ and all the faithful,
we may enter the city not made with hands,
your promised realm of justice and peace,

Eternal from age to age. Amen.

Opening Hymn: Ride On, Ride On in Majesty                                      #182

1. Ride on, ride on in majesty! Hark! All the tribes “Hosanna” cry; O Saviour meek, pursue thy road with palms and scattered garments strowed.

2. Ride on, ride on in majesty! In lowly pomp, ride on to die; O Christ, thy triumphs now begin o’er captive death and conquered sin.

3. Ride on, ride on in majesty! The angel squadrons of the sky look down with sad and wondering eyes to see the approaching sacrifice.

4. Ride on, ride on in majesty! Thy last and fiercest strife is nigh; the Father on his sapphire throne expects his own anointed Son.

5. Ride on, ride on in majesty! In lowly pomp, ride on to die; bow thy meek head to mortal pain; then take, O God, thy power, and reign.

Prayers of the People (adapted from Susan Sayers

As Jesus rides into Jerusalem on a donkey, and the crowds welcome him, we sense both the joy at the Messiah being acclaimed, and the heaviness of his suffering which follow. Jesus’ mission is drawing to its fulfilment.

Leader: As we recall Jesus entering Jerusalem, let us gather our thoughts to pray for Parish of March St. Mary’s, North March. St. John’s, March. St. Paul’s, Dunrobin, The Reverend Canon John Wilker-Blakley. The Reverend Mervyn Dunn. We pray for Fred, our Primate, Anne, our Metropolitan, John, our Bishop, and Michael Bird, our assisting Bishop. For Arran, our priest and for all clergy and people and their ministries in the Diocese of Ottawa.

People: God, as the crowds welcomed Jesus and sang your praises, we pray that many more will welcome you into their hearts and lives over the coming year. We pray for opportunities to spread your good news and courage to take them. (Silence).

Leader: You are our God: 

People: we welcome you!

Leader: God, we recall the donkey Jesus rode on and pray for that real humility in our hearts which treats status and image casually, and truth and loving service seriously. (Silence).

Leader: You are our God: 

People: we welcome you!

Leader: God, the children sang and shouted your praise, and we pray for the children in our homes, our city and our land. May we not fail them in the support and teaching they need. (Silence).

Leader: You are our God: 

People: we welcome you!

Leader: God, the crowds were responding to the healing love they had seen in action in Jesus. We bring to you in our love and imaginations now all those we would have brought to Jesus for healing and help. Give them comfort and reassurance, wholeness and hope. At this time we pray especially for (insert names), and for those we name silently or aloud. (Silence).

Leader: You are our God: 

People: we welcome you.

Leader: God, Jesus knew he was riding to his death. We pray for all on the last journey, especially those burdened with fear and guilt. We comment to your eternal love all who have died, thanking you for the blessings we have received, and even for the grief which is part of the love we share. At this time we pray especially for (insert names), and for those we name silently or aloud.  (Silence).

Leader: You are our God: 

People: we welcome you!

Leader: God, we, too, spread our coats on the road as we express our thankfulness for all you have done for us and the amazing extent of your love.

Leader: Merciful God,

People: accept these prayers in the name of your Son, our Saviour, Jesus Christ. Amen.

The Communion

Anthem: Lent Prose Tone V arr. Matthew Larkin

Hear us, O Lord, have mercy upon us: for we have sinned against thee. 

To thee, Redeemer, on thy throne of glory: lift we our weeping eyes in holy pleadings: listen, O Jesu, to our supplications.

O thou chief cornerstone, right hand of the Father: way of salvation, gate of life celestial: cleanse thou our sinful souls from all defilement.

God, we implore thee, In thy glory seated: Bow down and hearken to thy weeping children: pity and pardon all our grievous trespasses.

Sins oft committed, now we lay before thee: with true contrition, now no more we veil them: Grand us, Redeemer, loving absolution.

Innocent captive, taken unresisting: falsely accused, and for us sinners sentenced, Save us, we pray thee, Jesu, our Redeemer.
