Hymn of Invocation – All Glory, Laud, and Honor, LSB 442

All glory, laud, and honor
To You, Redeemer, King,
To whom the lips of children
Made sweet hosannas ring.

You are the King of Israel
And David’s royal Son,
Now in the Lord’s name coming,
Our King and Blessèd One. Refrain

The company of angels
Is praising You on high,
And we with all creation
In chorus make reply. Refrain

The multitude of pilgrims
With palms before You went;
Our praise and prayer and anthems
Before You we present. Refrain

To You before Your passion
They sang their hymns of praise;
To You, now high exalted,
Our melody we raise. Refrain

As You received their praises,
Accept the prayers we bring,
O Source of ev’ry blessing,
Our good and gracious King. Refrain

Processional Gospel – Luke 19:28-40

P: +The Holy Gospel according to St. Luke, the nineteenth chapter.
C: + Glory to You, O Lord.

+When [Jesus] had said these things, he went on ahead, going up to Jerusalem. When he drew near to Bethphage and Bethany, at the mount that is called Olivet, he sent two of the disciples, saying, “Go into the village in front of you, where on entering you will find a colt tied, on which no one has ever yet sat. Untie it and bring it here. If anyone asks you, ‘Why are you untying it?’ you shall say this: ‘The Lord has need of it.’” So those who were sent went away and found it just as he had told them. And as they were untying the colt, its owners said to them, “Why are you untying the colt?” And they said, “The Lord has need of it.” And they brought it to Jesus, and throwing their cloaks on the colt, they set Jesus on it. And as he rode along, they spread their cloaks on the road. As he was drawing near—already on the way down the Mount of Olives—the whole multitude of his disciples began to rejoice and praise God with a loud voice for all the mighty works that they had seen, saying, “Blessed is the King who comes in the name of the Lord! Peace in heaven and glory in the highest!” And some of the Pharisees in the crowd said to him, “Teacher, rebuke your disciples.” He answered, “I tell you, if these were silent, the very stones would cry out.”

P: +This is the Gospel of the Lord.
C: + Praise to You, O Christ!

Salutation and Collect of the Day
P: +The Lord be with you.
C: + And also with you.
P: +Let us pray. Almighty and everlasting God, You sent Your Son, our Savior Jesus Christ, to take upon Himself our flesh and to suffer death upon the cross. Mercifully grant that we may follow the example of His great humility and patience and be made partakers of His resurrection; through the same Jesus Christ, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.
C: + Amen.
Old Testament Reading – Isaiah 50:4-9a
+The Lord God has given me the tongue of those who are taught, that I may know how to sustain with a word him who is weary. Morning by morning he awakens; he awakens my ear to hear as those who are taught.
+The Lord God has opened my ear, and I was not rebellious; I turned not backward. I gave my back to those who strike, and my cheeks to those who pull out the beard; I hid not my face from disgrace and spitting.
+But the Lord God helps me; therefore I have not been disgraced; therefore I have set my face like a flint, and I know that I shall not be put to shame. He who vindicates me is near. Who will contend with me? Let us stand up together. Who is my adversary? Let him come near to me. Behold, the Lord God helps me; who will declare me guilty?

P: +This is the Word of the Lord.
C: + Thanks be to God.
Epistle – Philippians 2:5-11
+Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but made himself nothing, taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

P: +This is the Word of the Lord.
C: + Thanks be to God.
Holy Gospel – Luke 19:41-44
P: +The Holy Gospel according to St. Luke, the nineteenth chapter.
C: + Glory to You, O Lord.

+And when he drew near and saw the city, he wept over it, saying, “Would that you, even you, had known on this day the things that make for peace! But now they are hidden from your eyes. For the days will come upon you, when your enemies will set up a barricade around you and surround you and hem you in on every side and tear you down to the ground, you and your children within you. And they will not leave one stone upon another in you, because you did not know the time of your visitation.”

P: +This is the Gospel of the Lord.
C: + Praise to You, O Christ.
Children’s Song – The King of Glory Comes, AGPS 227

The King of Glory comes, the nation rejoices;
Open the gates before Him, lift up your voices.

Who is the King of Glory; how shall we call Him?
He is Emmanuel, the Promised of ages. Refrain

In all of Galilee, in city or village,
He goes among His people curing their illness. Refrain
Children’s Message
Hymn of the Day – Ride On, Ride On in Majesty, LSB 441

Ride on, ride on in majesty!
Hark! All the tribes hosanna cry.
O Savior 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 angel armies of the sky
Look down with sad and wond’ring eyes
To see the approaching sacrifice.

Ride on, ride on in majesty!
Thy 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 pow’r and reign.
Sermon - Jesus Weeps
Apostles' Creed
C: + I believe in God, the Father Almighty, maker of heaven and earth.
+ And in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried. He descended into hell. The third day He rose again from the dead. He ascended into heaven and sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty. From thence He will come to judge the living and the dead.
+ I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy Christian Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen.

Prayer of Thanksgiving
P: +Thank You, Lord of all creation, for not leaving us forsaken in our sins, but for redeeming us by Your love shown us in Jesus, who humbled Himself, being born as a human being; who taught and healed and cast out evil and forgave; who confronted the proud and lifted up the lowly; who gave Himself into betrayal, torture, and death on a cross; whom You raised on the third day in triumph over all evil. For this bread and cup, Christ’s body and blood, given and shed for the forgiveness of our sins, we thank You, we praise You, and we adore You.
C: + Amen.
The Words of Our Lord
P: +Our Lord Jesus Christ, on the night when He was betrayed, took bread, and when He had given thanks, He broke it and gave it to the disciples and said: “Take, eat; this is My + body, which is given for you. This do in remembrance of Me.” In the same way also He took the cup after supper, and when He had given thanks, He gave it to them, saying: “Drink of it, all of you; this cup is the new testament in My + blood, which is shed for you for the forgiveness of sins. This do, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me.”
Proclamation of Christ
P: +As often as we eat this bread and drink this cup, we proclaim the Lord’s death until He comes.
C: + Amen. Come, Lord Jesus.
P: +O Lord Jesus Christ, only Son of the Father, in giving us Your body and blood to eat and to drink, You lead us to remember and confess Your holy cross and passion, Your blessed death, Your rest in the tomb, Your resurrection from the dead, Your ascension into heaven, and Your coming for the final judgment. So remember us in Your kingdom and teach us to pray:
Lord’s Prayer
C: + Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name, Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven; give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever and ever. Amen.
Post-Communion Thanksgiving
P: +Let us pray. Gracious Father, Your Son, our Lord Jesus, made Himself nothing, taking on the form of a servant, dying for us on the cross. We are filled with the forgiveness of sins flowing from this bread and cup of His body and blood. Form us as servants of the One who came not to be served but to serve, and to give His life as a ransom for many; in the name of Jesus.
C: + Amen.
P: +Let your eyes be fixed on Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God.

P: +The Lord bless you and keep you. The Lord make His face shine on you and be gracious to you. The Lord look upon you with favor and + give you peace.
C: + Amen.
Closing Hymn – Hosanna, Loud Hosanna, LSB 443
Hosanna, loud hosanna, the little children sang;
Through pillared court and temple the lovely anthem rang.
To Jesus, who had blessed them, close folded to His breast,
The children sang their praises, the simplest and the best.

From Olivet they followed mid an exultant crowd,
The victor palm branch waving and chanting clear and loud.
The Lord of earth and heaven rode on in lowly state
Nor scorned that little children should on His bidding wait.

“Hosanna in the highest!” That ancient song we sing;
For Christ is our Redeemer, the Lord of heav’n our King.
Oh, may we ever praise Him with heart and life and voice
And in His blissful presence eternally rejoice!
