Just in case anyone is desperately seeking one more child-friendly song for Palm Sunday tomorrow, here’s one I wrote earlier:

Little donkey, little donkey
On the dusty road
Got to keep on plodding onwards
With your precious load.

Bear your king, O little donkey
Through the noisy crowd
Don’t you fear them, they won’t hurt you
Hold your head up proud.

Wave, wave those palms today
Hosanna ! Hosanna !
Lay down your cloaks and say
Hosanna ! Hosanna !

Little donkey, little donkey
down the hill and then
onwards just a little further
to Jerusalem.

Nearly there now, little donkey,
soon be home again.
You have carried your Messiah
to his journey’s end.

Wave, wave those palms today…

Little donkey, little donkey
Had a heavy day
Little donkey, carry Jesus
Safely on his way,

Little donkey, carry Jesus
Safely on his way.
