Palm Sunday Service

Opening Hymn

All glory laud and honour,

to thee, Redeemer King,

to whom the lips of children

made sweet hosannas ring.

 

1. Thou art the King of Israel,

thou David's royal Son,

Who in the Lord's name comest,

the King and blessed one.

 

All glory laud and honour,

to thee, Redeemer King,

to whom the lips of children

made sweet hosannas ring.

 

2. The company of angels

are praising thee on high,

and mortals, joined with all things,

created, make reply.

 

All glory laud and honour,

to thee, Redeemer King,

to whom the lips of children

made sweet hosannas ring.

 

3. The people of the Hebrews

with palms before thee went:

our praise and prayer and anthems

 

All glory laud and honour,

to thee, Redeemer King,

to whom the lips of children

made sweet hosannas ring.

before thee we present.

4. To thee before thy passion

they sang their hymns of praise:

to thee now high exalted

our melody we raise.

All glory laud and honour,

to thee, Redeemer King,

to whom the lips of children

made sweet hosannas ring.

 

5. Thou didst accept their praises,

accept the prayers we bring,

who in all good delightest,

thou good and gracious king.

 

All glory laud and honour,

to thee, Redeemer King,

to whom the lips of children

made sweet hosannas ring.

 

Closing Hymn

 

1. Ride on, ride on in majesty!

Hark, all the tribes hosanna cry;

thy humble beast pursues his road

with palms and scattered garments strowed.

 

2. Ride on, ride on in majesty!

In lowly pomp ride on to die;

O Christ, thy triumphs now begin

o'er captive death and conquered sin.

 

3. Ride on, ride on in majesty!

The winged squadrons of the sky

look down with sad and wond'ring eyes

to see th'approaching sacrifice.

 

4. Ride on, ride on in majesty!

Thy last and fiercest strife is nigh;

the Father, on his sapphire throne,

awaits his own appointed Son.

 

5. Ride on, ride on in majesty!

In lowly pomp ride on to die;

bow thy meek head to mortal pain,

then take, O God, thy pow'r, and reign.
