All Glory, Laud and Honour

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 we with all creation in chorus make reply.

The people of the Hebrews with psalms 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; English translation: John Mason Neale
Music: "St. Theodulph," Melchior Teschner, 1615
