Hosianna dem Sohne Davids [Hosanna to the son of David] (Matthew 21:9) – Bartholomeus Gesius

Entry of Christ into Jerusalem (1320) by Pietro Lorenzetti: entering the city on a donkey symbolizes arrival in peace rather than as a war-waging king arriving on a horse

Matthew 21:9b [German]

And the multitudes that went before, and that followed, cried, saying, Hosanna to the son of David: Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord; Hosanna in the highest.

Hosianna dem Sohne Davids, composed by Bartholomeus Gesius (1555/1562-1613)

The wilderness and the solitary place (Isaiah 35:1-2,4,6,8,10) – Samuel Sebastian Wesley

Samuel_Sebastian_Wesley9Isaiah 35:1-2,4,6,8,10

The wilderness and the solitary place shall be glad for them; and the desert shall rejoice, and blossom as the rose.

It shall blossom abundantly, and rejoice even with joy and singing: the glory of Lebanon shall be given unto it, the excellency of Carmel and Sharon, they shall see the glory of the Lord, and the excellency of our God.

Say to them that are of a fearful heart, Be strong, fear not: behold, your God will come with vengeance, even God with a recompence; he will come and save you.

Then shall the lame man leap as an hart, and the tongue of the dumb sing: for in the wilderness shall waters break out, and streams in the desert.

And an highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called The way of holiness; the unclean shall not pass over it; but it shall be for those: the wayfaring men, though fools, shall not err therein.

10 And the ransomed of the Lord shall return, and come to Zion with songs and everlasting joy upon their heads: they shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.

The wilderness and the solitary place (1832), composed by Samuel Sebastian Wesley (1810-1876)
