HYMN for Palm Sunday

Glory, praise, and honour be to thee, O Christ, our King, our Saviour; to whom the innocent children sang their fervent Hosanna.

R Glory, praise, &c.

Thou art the King of Israel, the glorious Son of David! Blessed art thou our King! that comest in the name of the Lord.

R Glory, praise, &c.

The whole heavenly host, in the highest heavens above, and men on earth, and all created things praise thee.

R Glory, praise, &c.

The Hebrew people, with palms, went forth to meet thee: behold, we, too, present ourselves before thee, with our prayers, desires, and hymns.

R Glory, praise, &c.

They offered the tribute of their praise to thee, when thou wast about to suffer; we sing our hymn to thee seated on thy throne.

R Glory, praise, &c.

They were pleasing to thee; grant that our devotion may also please thee, O dear and merciful King! to whom all is pleasing that is good.

R Glory, praise, &c.

Gloria, laus et honor, tibi sit, Rex Christe, Redemptor!

Cui puerile decus prompsit Hosanna plum.
R Gloria, laus.

Israel es tu Rex, Davidis et inclyta proles:

Nomine qui in Domini, rex benedicte, venis.

R Gloria, laus.

Coetus in excelsis, te laudat coelicus omnis,
Et mortalis homo, et cuncta create simul.

R Gloria, laus.

Plebs Hebraea tibi cum palmis obvia venit:

Cum prece, voto, hymnis, adsumus ecce tibi.

R Gloria, laus.

Hi tibi passuro solvebant munia laudis;

Nos tibi regnanti pangimus ecce melos.

R Gloria, laus.

Hi placuere tibi, placeat devotio nostra,
Rex bone, rex clemens, cui bona cuncta placent.

R Gloria, laus.
