Lyrics as Poetry

Come into the streets with me!
Come to where the crowds will be,
see a strange and gentle king
on a donkey travelling.Refrain:Come and follow my leader,
come and follow my leader,
Jesus Christ is riding by,
come and follow my leader!
All the people shout his name,
waving branches, sing his fame,
throw their coats upon his road,
glad to praise the Son of God.— Refrain —If the soldiers draw their swords,
will we dare to sing these words,
be his friends for just a day,
cheer him on, then run away?— Refrain —Jesus goes where things are rough,
Jesus knows when life is tough,
always comes to us, his friends,
so his story never ends.— Refrain —
