SATB and Organ (or Piano). An exuberant and sparkling setting of the Palm Sunday text All Glory Laud and Honor, mixing meters and keys. Not nearly as difficult as it sounds. Quotes the hymn tune "St. Anne" and ends with a loud Hosanna! (Requires a good accompanist!)
All glory, laud, 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 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.
Hosanna in the Highest!
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.
Come, sing a loud Hosanna!
