Song of the Week: “Ride On, King Jesus” by Steve Bell


Today is Ash Wednesday, the first day of Lent.  As we look forward to Easter, when we’ll celebrate Jesus’ sacrifice for us and His incredible resurrection, many people choose to set aside a few of their regular habits, like certain foods or activities, and spend more time in prayer.  I’m really looking forward to the next forty days as I join a few of my friends in dedicating one hour each day to prayer.  It’s going to be a challenge, but I know that the resulting spiritual growth will be phenomenal.

In the spirit of Lent, this week’s Song of the Week is “Ride On, King Jesus” by Steve Bell.  This song is based on Jesus’ triumphal entry on Palm Sunday, and it’s a call to worship for all of God’s people to praise the Lord of Lords.  As we move toward Easter, let’s focus on our great King Jesus and praise Him for overcoming sin and death to bring us life.  No one can hinder thee!

Lyrics:

Ride on King Jesus
No one can a-hinder thee
Ride on King Jesus ride on
No one can a-hinder thee

King Jesus rides to Jerusalem
No one can a-hinder thee
Hosanna to King David’s son
No one can a-hinder thee
He rides upon a donkey small
No one can a-hinder thee
The King of peace the Lord of all
No one can a-hinder thee

Ride on King Jesus
No one can a-hinder thee
Ride on King Jesus ride on
No one can a-hinder thee

The children sing and they dance and shout
No one can a-hinder thee
If they won’t praise the rocks cry out
No one can a-hinder thee
King Jesus done just what He said
No one can a-hinder thee
He healed the sick and He raised the dead
No one can a-hinder thee

Ride on King Jesus
No one can a-hinder thee
Ride on King Jesus ride on
No one can a-hinder thee

The light of God shines on His face
No one can a-hinder thee
He offers all His pardoning grace
No one can a-hinder thee
Come join the throng your voices raise
No one can a-hinder thee
The King of love deserves your praise
No one can a-hinder thee

Ride on King Jesus
No one can a-hinder thee
Ride on King Jesus ride on
No one can a-hinder thee

Ride on King Jesus
No one can a-hinder thee
Ride on King Jesus ride on
No one can a-hinder thee
No one can a-hinder thee
No one can a-hinder thee
