364. You are the King of Israel

All glory, laud, and honour
to you, Redeemer, King,
to whom the lips of children
made sweet hosannas ring!

1 You are the King of Israel,
great David’s royal Son,
now in the Lord’s name coming,
our King and Blessèd One. [Refrain]

2 The company of angels
is praising you on high,
while we and all creation
together make reply. [Refrain]

3 The people of the Hebrews
with palms before you went;
our praise and prayer and anthems
before you we present. [Refrain]

4 To you before your Passion,
they sang their hymns of praise;
to you, now high exalted,
our melody we raise. [Refrain]

5 Their praises you accepted;
accept the prayers we bring,
in every good delighting,
our great and gracious King: [Refrain]
