Palm Sunday

All glory, praise, and honor,
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 praislng Thee on high,
and mortal men and all things
created make reply.

The people of the Hebrews
with palms before Thee went;
our pralse and prayer 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.

Hmmmm, what's better? Christian hits from the '80s or the 8th century? Not even a contest, is it?

Did you have "The King of Glory" in mind, perchance?
