That Same Crowd by Raymond A. Foss
How many of those people
would turn on Christ
how many who sang Hosanna
would shout
to send him to the cross

That same crowd
who hailed the coming Messiah
would turn to crucify
our God, Emmanuel

Not what they expected
the conquering redeemer
who would vanquish the Romans
setting the captives free

Something much deeper
the healing he offered
fulfilling all scripture
through the road to Calvary
