Excerpts from the Palm Sunday Procession Hymns
Qolo: Tubo Lyalude
Blessed are the children who were worthy to see Christ
When he entered Jerusalem, riding a borrowed stripped colt.
The children cried in front of him, "Hosanna in the High,
Hosanna to the Son of David.
Blessed is he Who came in the Name of the Lord."
Note: The "stripped" colt is a reference to the modesty of Christ, for he did not enter like a king on a decorated horse, and instead came on a barren colt.
Bocootho (Petition) of Mor Ya`qub
Qadish � Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord," cried the infants;
"Holy is the Lord, Who rode on a colt and entered Jerusalem."
Sing to Him, Sing to Him, Sing praises to the Son of God.
He Created you for His praise; Why are you then not praising Him?
The Prophets before Him and the Apostles after Him;
The infants and the children magnified Him with "Hosanna.
