All Glory, Laud and Honor

Representative Text

1 All glory, laud, and honor
to you, Redeemer, King,
to whom the lips of children
made sweet hosannas ring.
You are the King of Israel
and David's royal Son,
now in the Lord's name coming,
the King and Blessed One.

2 The company of angels
is praising you on high;
and we with all creation
in chorus make reply.
The people of the Hebrews
with palms before you went;
our praise and prayer and anthems
before you we present.

3 To you before your passion
they sang their hymns of praise;
to you, now high exalted,
our melody we raise.
As you received their praises,
accept the prayers we bring,
for you delight in goodness,
O good and gracious King!

Psalter Hymnal, (Gray)

Translator: J. M. Neale

Neale, John Mason, D.D., was born in Conduit Street, London, on Jan. 24, 1818. He inherited intellectual power on both sides: his father, the Rev. Cornelius Neale, having been Senior Wrangler, Second Chancellor's Medallist, and Fellow of St. John's College, Cambridge, and his mother being the daughter of John Mason Good, a man of considerable learning. Both father and mother are said to have been "very pronounced Evangelicals." The father died in 1823, and the boy's early training was entirely under the direction of his mother, his deep attachment for whom is shown by the fact that, not long before his death, he wrote of her as "a mother to whom I owe more than I can express." He was educated at Sherborne Grammar School, and was afterwards… Go to person page >

Author: Theodulf, Bishop of Orléans

Theodulph of Orleans appears to have been a native of Italy. He was brought to France by Charles the Great, perhaps when Charles returned from Italy in 781. He became Bishop of Orleans about 785, and soon afterwards also Abbot of Fleury. After the death of Charles he continued for some time on friendly terms with the Emperor Louis, but, falling under suspicion of being concerned in the plot in favour of Bernard of Italy, was imprisoned in 818, at Angers, where he seems to have died in 821, apparently on Sep. 18. There is a full and interesting sketch of his life and works in the Dictionary of Chr. Biog., iii., pp. 983-989. See also Potthast's Biblical History, Medii Aevi, 1896, vol. ii., p. 1058.

Scripture References: st. 1-3 = Matt. 21:1-17, Mark 11:1-10, Luke 19:28-38, John 12:12-13 st. 2 = Rev. 5:11-12 Theodulph, bishop of Orleans, wrote this text around 820 while he was imprisoned at Angers, France, for conspiring against King Louis the Pious. A probably apocryphal story from the early sixteenth century states that in a Palm Sunday procession King Louis passed the prison in which Theodulph was housed and heard the imprisoned bishop singing this hymn. According to the legend the king was so moved that he freed Theodulph and decreed the singing of "All Glory, Laud, and Honor" on all subsequent Palm Sundays. The text was originally in thirty-nine Latin couplets, although only the first twelve lines were sung in ancient liturgical use (since a late-ninth-century manuscript from St. Gall). John M. Neale (PHH 342) translated the text into English in his Medieval Hymns and Sequences (1851). Neale revised that translation for The Hymnal Noted (1854); a further altered text was included in the original edition of Hymns Ancient and Modern (1861). Based on Matthew 21:1-11 (and similar passages in Mark 11, Luke 19, and John 12), the text was originally written for a Palm Sunday procession. Thus it reflects on the original Palm Sunday's hymns of praise by the Jews as well as on our praise today. Liturgical Use: Palm Sunday morning processional; possibly during Advent. --Psalter Hymnal Handbook


ST. THEODULPH (Teschner)

Now often named ST. THEODULPH because of its association with this text, the tune is also known, especially in organ literature, as VALET WILL ICH DIR GEBEN. It was composed by Melchior Teschner (b. Fraustadt [now Wschowa, Poland], Silesia, 1584; d. Oberpritschen, near Fraustadt, 1635) for "Valet wi…
