Today in church, I was moved to crying during this song. I have heard before and always have the same reaction. Palm Sunday is such an emotionally potent day. Imagine being Jesus, you arrive to Jerusalem, the people are waving palm fronds at you, laying down their garments for your lowly donkey to walk over, there is a feeling of joy and celebration in the air and then………the mobs start shouting “crucify him, crucify him.” And you aren’t even able to defend yourself because you know this is the way. Your path. Christ died for sins he never committed. On a lighter note, I love the concept of not only Jesus being a lamb, but we are called to be also.
As we gather together for the journey of Easter, be as present as you can; and if you cry in church, it’s okay – it means that Jesus is touching your heart.
