Where were the Hosannahs by Raymond A. Foss

Where were the hosannahs
that rang out five days before
there before Pilate
the crowd calling for his blood

Christ, the Messiah
the savior of the people
welcomed into David’s city
a hope of real salvation

But challenging the leaders
the priests, scribes, the Pharisees
a balance to their power
questioning their authority

Trying him in secret
in the middle of the night
bringing him before Pilate
telling him to do what is right

Hecklers in the crowd
the mob seething in frenzy
the Passover lamb
sacrificed on the cross

Our sins, all prophecy
fulfilled in this story
even the evil that they did
was used by Christ for God’s glory
