Sabbath Rest – All Glory, Laud and Honor

The start of Holy Week – Palm Sunday!

John 12:13 – So they took branches of palm trees and went out to meet him, crying out, “Hosanna! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord, even the King of Israel!”

This hymn was written by Theodulf, Bishop of Orléans (c. 820), and translated by J. M. Neale (1854). So I think it’s safe to say these words have truly stood the test of time! The lyrics that I found online do not quite match up with the lyrics on the video, but I thought they should be shared as well! Enjoy – and I pray you’ll be blessed!

1 All glory, laud, and honor
to you, Redeemer, King,
to whom the lips of children
made sweet hosannas ring.
You are the King of Israel
and David’s royal Son,
now in the Lord’s name coming,
the King and Blessed One.

2 The company of angels
is praising you on high;
and we with all creation
in chorus make reply.
The people of the Hebrews
with palms before you went;
our praise and prayer and anthems
before you we present.

3 To you before your passion
they sang their hymns of praise;
to you, now high exalted,
our melody we raise.
As you received their praises,
accept the prayers we bring,
for you delight in goodness,
O good and gracious King!
