Palm Sunday

video
...In the middle of Holy Week - a little clip from Sunday - one of my favorite hymns - and the little children bearing the palms...

All Glory, Laud, and Honor
By: Theodulf of Orleans

You are the king of Israel
And David’s royal Son,
Now in the Lord’s name coming,
Our King and Blessed One.
All glory, laud, and honor
To you, Redeemer, King
To whom the lips of children
Made sweet hosannas ring.


The company of angels
Are praising you on high;
Creation and all mortals
In chorus make reply.
All glory, laud, and honor
To you, Redeemer, King
To whom the lips of children
Made sweet hosannas ring.


The multitude of pilgrims
With palms before you went,
Our praise and prayer and anthems
Before you we present.
All glory, laud, and honor
To you, Redeemer, King
To whom the lips of children
Made sweet hosannas ring.


To you, before your Passion,
They sang their hymns of praise.
To you, now high exalted,
Our melody we raise.
All glory, laud, and honor
To you, Redeemer, King
To whom the lips of children
Made sweet hosannas ring.


Their praises you accepted;
Accept the prayers we bring,
Great author of all goodness,
O good and gracious King.
All glory, laud, and honor
To you, Redeemer, King
To whom the lips of children
Made sweet hosannas ring.

  2. That is a lovely hymn, we did it Sunday during our palm parade too. Our praise band also did this song which I love: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M7SMUf6QcyQ
