"Here Comes Our King"

A-Poem-a-Day Until Resurrection Day

Today I have a new poem to share...



I recall Zechariah prophesied

that Our King would come to us

just and endowed with salvation

humble and mounted on a donkey, still


it’s difficult to believe

that this King processing toward us

can possibly be the King

we’ve been expecting


But here comes a King

riding along the road to Jerusalem

that leads to the Temple

He’s not in a fine carriage

or upon a stately white stallion

No. This king is astride

a lowly brown donkey


just as Zechariah foretold


He’s not wearing a long regal robe

just an ordinary tunic

There’s no crown studded with jewels

upon his head. No ornate golden scepter

in His hand


but this King

has healed the blind and lame

and raised the dead before our eyes

He’s fed our hungry multitudes

and actually walked upon the Sea of Galilee


No one has ever done such things before


This King has taught us to pray

and has proclaimed

the very words of God


I’ve seen Him—


I believe Him


so I remove my cloak

and lay it on the road before Him

then break off a low hanging branch

from a palm tree nearby
