Palm Sunday — words from Mexico

Joel Elí Padrón Ibáñez Iglesia Reformada Peniel México shares these words

Hosanna!, ¡Hosanna!, ¡Bendito el que viene en el Nombre de Dios!
Que se abran las puertas de los templos, de las casa, de las escuelas,
de los trabajos, de nuestras mismas vidas
que está llegando ¡El Rey poderoso!, ¡Nuestro Rey poderoso y humilde!
¿Y quién es este Rey?
¡Es Jesús, nuestro Salvador, Hermano y Amigo!
que ha escuchado nuestras hosannas y viene a Salvamos y a darnos Vida.
Es Jesús, que ha abrazado y bendecido a las niñas y niños,
es Jesús, que ha platicado en público y que se ha dejado tocar, y ungir por la mujer,
es Jesús, que se ha detenido a dar de comer a la multitud,
que ha dado vida a las hijas e hijos y a los amigos;
es Jesús, que ha hecho el bien en el “día de descanso”,
es Jesús, que sigue entrando cada día para que le abramos nuestra vida
y pueda vivir en ti y en mi y en todo ser que le acepte como:
Jesucristo, el Hijo del Dios viviente.

Hosanna! Hosanna! Blessed is he who comes in the Name of God!
Who opens the doors of the temples, of the houses, of the schools,
of the jobs, of our very lives,
who is coming. The powerful King! Our powerful and humble King!
And who is this King?
It is Jesus, our Savior, Brother and Friend!
who has heard our hosannas and come to Save us and give us Life.
It is Jesus, who has embraced and blessed the girls and boys,
it is Jesus, who has spoken in public and who has let children touch him,
and has anointed the women,
it is Jesus, who has stopped to give food to the crowds,
who has given life to daughters and sons and to friends;
it is Jesus, who has done good on the “day of rest,”
it is Jesus, who keeps coming in/entering every day so we can open our lives
and can live in you and in me and in every being/all that accept him as:
Jesus Christ the Son of the living God.
