Latinised Hymns

Ride on! ride on in majesty!

Ride on! ride on in majesty!
Hark! all the tribes Hosanna cry!
O Saviour meek, pursue thy road
With palms and scattered garments strowed.

Ride on! ride on in majesty!
In lowly pomp ride on to die:
O Christ, thy triumphs now begin
O'er captive death and conquered sin.

Ride on! ride on in majesty!
The winged squadrons of the sky
Look down with sad and wondering eyes
To see the approaching sacrifice.

Ride on! ride on in majesty!
The last and fiercest strife is nigh:
The Father on his sapphire throne
Awaits his own anointed Son.

Ride on! ride on in majesty!
In lowly pomp ride on to die;
Bow thy meek head to mortal pain;
Then take, O God, thy power, and reign.

H.H.Milman

Vehare prorsus splendide,
laudante civitate te!
Constratum i, Salvator, per
vestitu palmulisque iter.

Vehare prorsus splendide,
ovans sed morti debite!
O Christe, nunc instituas
supra malum victorias.

Vehare prorsus splendide!
Coetu caelorum alite
piaculum stupetur et
ploratur id quod imminet.

Vehare prorsus splendide!
Certamen ultimum(st) prope.
Elatus et Pater suum
exspectat unctum Filium.

Vehare prorsus splendide,
ovans sed morti debite!
Homo dolori subditus,
regnabis inde tu Deus.
