Palm-Passion Sunday

All Glory, Laud, and Honor

Text: Theodulph of Orleans, c. 820, tr. John M. Neale, 1851
Tune: ST. THEODULPH, Melchior Teschner

Refrain

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


Thou art the King of Israel,
Thou David’s royal Son,
Who in the Lord’s name comest,
The King and Bless├Ęd One.

Refrain

The people of the Hebrews
With palms before thee went;
Our prayer and praise and anthems
Before thee we present.

Refrain


To thee, before thy passion,
They sang their hymns of praise;
To thee, now high exalted,
Our melody we raise.

Refrain


Thou didst accept their praises;
Accept the prayers we bring,
Who in all good delightest,
Thou good and gracious King.

Refrain

It's not Palm Sunday without this hymn.

Thank you for posting these traditional words. I sing these every year before realizing that our hymnal has changed most of the language in this hymn to erase the "King" references! I'm all for refraining from being paternalistic/ imperialistic, but for goodness sake, if Jesus can't be King on Palm Sunday, haven't we taken it a bit too far?!
