palm sunday: joanna, wife of chuza.

i left the courts of a king
all to leave and follow you
because with you i found a house
of help and healing
the Son of man has no place to lay his head
but i could at least make my home with you
and make sure all the family
had a little food and warmth at night

and now you come in on a borrowed donkey
into royal david’s city, and the gates
have lifted up their heads to let you in
King of glory, king of Israel
take up your place
one day in your courts is better than thousands elsewhere

(but why, my Lord
would i see you weep
even as you ascend
to your throne)
