Suggested Tune WINCHESTER NEW (8888)
from Georg Wittwe’s Musikalisch Handbuch
1. Ride on: ride on in majesty;
The palms affirm with certainty
Your claim to be Messiah King.
The crowds join in and loudly sing.
2. Ride on; ride on - A peaceful plea -
A colt you ride symbolically.
They want a stallion and a sword
To fight a war. No peace accord!
3. Ride on; ride on for liberty.
The charge is your insurgency.
You claim to bring the temple down;
They'll make you wear a special crown!
4. Ride on; ride on courageously,
In growing fierce hostility.
Enraged, they hate with lawless skill;
The men in power plan to kill.
5. Ride on; ride on to Calvary
With tortured grim integrity.
Absorb the pain; repay with grace
And thus transform the human race.
