I saw a palm upon the ground, with dirt on every feature
I picked it up and brushed it off, in the glory of it’s nature
A symbol of victory, a banner of peace, the award of all mankind
A view of triumph, and eternal life within this hand of mine.
And then, behold the Son of God came riding on a donkey
So overwhelmed, we laid our cloaks and lifted high our palm leaves
As He rode by, the King of Kings, our eyes were not the driest
As tears flowed down, we shared a shout Hosanna! In the Highest!
We did not know His life would end, so soon upon the cross
That three days later, He would rise and wouldn’t have a loss
Salvation came and every year, palm branches come out again
To remind His people of the victory, and their eternal salvation.
