LL glory, laud, and honor
The people of the Hebrews
With palms before Thee went; Our praise and prayer and anthems
Before Thee we present.
To Thee, Redeemer, King, To whom the lips of children
Made sweet hosannas ring!
Thou David's royal Son,
The King and blessed One.
2 The company of angels
Are praising Thee on high, And mortal men and all things
Created make reply.
3 To Thee before Thy passion,
They sang their hymns of praise;
Our melody we raise.
Accept the praise we bring,
Theodulph of Orleans, c. 820;
100 to dark Gethsemane,
Ye that feel the tempter's power; Your Redeemer's conflict see;
Watch with Him one bitter hour; Turn not from His griefs away; Learn of Jesus Christ to pray.
2 See Him at the judgment-hall,
Beaten, bound, reviled, arraigned; See Him meekly bearing all;
Love to man His soul sustained. Shun not suffering, shame or loss; Learn of Christ to bear the cross.
3 Calvary's mournful mountain climb;
There adoring at His feet, Mark that miracle of time,
God's own sacrifice complete; “It is finished!” hear Him cry; Learn of Jesus Christ to die.
