All Glory, Laud and Honer
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 Blessèd One.
The company of angels
Are praising Thee on High,
And mortal men and all things
Created make reply.
The people of the Hebrews
With palms before Thee went;
Our prayer and praise and anthems
Before Thee we present.
To Thee, before Thy passion,
They sang their hymns of praise;
To Thee, now high exalted,
Our melody we raise.
Thou didst accept their praises;
Accept the prayers we bring,
Who in all good delightest,
Thou good and gracious King.
Words: Theodulph of Orleans, circa 820 (Gloria, laus, et honor) translated from Latin to English by John M. Neale, 1851
4 thoughts on “All Glory, Laud and Honor ~ Palm Sunday Hymn”
This melody was in my head this morning though I didn’t know the words. A fitting hymn for this triumphant day.
I’m singing along! It’s not often that we hear these old hymns anymore. A wonderful song of worship for Palm Sunday.
I agree with Judy! A perfect Palm Sunday hymn! Blessings, Ellen!
Thanks for posting the hymn “All Glory, Laud and Honour,” written over a thousand years ago. It is sad that so many in the multitudes surrounding the Lord Jesus so quickly turned against Him, days later.
If you enjoy reading about our hymns and their authors, I encourage you to check out my daily blog on the subject, Wordwise Hymns. It is an almanac that will tell you things that happened in hymn history on each day of the year.
And if you’ll excuse a brief “commercial:” With the arrival of fall, we begin to think of the Christmas season up ahead. If you do not have a good book on the subject of our Christmas carols, I encourage you to take a look at mine, Discovering the Songs of Christmas. In it, I discuss the history and meaning of 63 carols and Christmas hymns. The book is available through Amazon, or directly from Jebaire Publishing. (Might make a great gift too!)
