All Glory, Laud and Honour (Honor)

This is a hymn giving glory to God.  It is based on "Gloria. laus, et honor" by St Theodulph of Orleans, who died in 821.  

The hymn was translated to English by John Mason Neale (1818-1866), and is particularly popular for Palm (Passion) Sunday and Christ the King.

With meter with refrain, it is almost always set to the tune ST. THEODULPH, also known as VALET WILL ICH DIR GEBEN, by Melchior Teschner (1584-1635).

All glory, laud and honour,
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 blessed 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.
