This is the traditional processional hymn for Palm Sunday
Refrain: Glory and praise to Thee, Redeemer blest!
To whom their glad hosannas children pour’d;
Hail, Israel’s King! hail, David’s Son confess’d!
Who comest in the name of Israel’s Lord.
Thy praise in Heav’n the Host angelic sings;
On earth mankind, with all created things.
Thee once with palms the Jews went forth to meet;
Thee now with prayers and holy hymns we greet.
Thee, on thy way to die, they crown’d with praise;
To Thee, now King on high, our song we raise.
Thee their poor homage pleas’d, O gracious King!
Ours too accept, —the best that we can bring.
Words: St. Theodulph of Orléans, 9th C.
Music: “Gloria Laus et Honor” Gregorian Chant, Mode I, traditional.
