Palm Sunday: All Glory, Laud and Honor

The tradition of singing All Glory, Laud and Honor on Palm Sunday dates back to round AD 800. It was written by Theodulf, Bishop of Orleans, France.

Here is the Latin refrain, followed by a word-for-word English translation, and then the metered translation found in Lutheran Service Book.

Gloria, laus et honor tibi sit
Rex Christe, Redemptor,
Cui puerile decus
prompsit hosanna pium

Glory, praise and honor to you,
who is Christ the King [and] Redeemer
In whom childlike dignity
brings forth the godly hosanna

All glory, laud, and honor
To You, Redeemer, King
To Whom the lips of children
Made sweet Hosannas ring.
