O Little donkey, how my sins reek!
Wretched life, poor lot to keep.
Yet He summoned! “Fulfil my need”,
Now King and I, His chosen steed.
“Exult greatly, O daughter Zion! Shout for joy, O daughter Jerusalem! Behold: your king is coming to you, a just saviour is he, humble, and riding on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey.”
~ Zechariah 9:9
“The Master has need of it.”
~ Luke 19:34
