Brays

Words and music by David Olney
© 1994 Bug Music, BMI/David Olney

None is more proud than the stallion
None is more feared than the lion
None is more free than the eagle
But who is more blessed than I am?

I was never what you would call noble
Beauty and grace I lack
Only a poor beast of burden
But once I bore a king upon my back

Blessed am I of all creatures
Blessed am I of all beasts
I heard the cries of Hosanna
Palm leaves were laid at my feet

Tethered to a tree at the crossroad
Two men appeared at my side
They led me away to their master
And upon my back he did ride

We entered the city in triumph
Every man’s heart filled with joy
I raised my ears at their shouting
And added my own humble voice

Before you would taunt me with your laughter
A favor of you I would ask
Remember the king that I once carried
And let your mockery pass

Blessed am I of all creatures
Blessed am I of all beasts
I heard the cries of Hosanna
Palm leaves were laid at my feet

None is more proud than the stallion
None is more feared than the lion
None is more free than the eagle
But who is more blessed than I am?
