Palm Sunday hymn

All glory, laud, and honour
To Thee, Redeemer, King,
To whom the lips of children
Made sweet hosannas ring.

 

Words were written in Latin in the 9th century by Theodulph, a bishop of Orléans, France. Over a dispute with the Holy Roman Emperor Louis the Pious, Theodulph was placed under house arrest in a monastery. The words were written for a Palm Sunday to commemorate the arrive of Jesus in Jerusalem as told in Matthew 21. It was translated into English in 1851.
