Glory and praise and honor

Full Text

1 Glory and praise and honor
To Thee, Redeemer, King,
To whom the lips of children
Made sweet hosannas ring.

Chorus:
Glory and praise and honor,
To Thee, Redeemer, King,
To whom the lips of children
Made sweet hosannas ring.

2 The people of the Hebrews
With palms before Thee went;
Our praise and pray'r and anthems
Before Thee we present. [Chorus]

3 Thou wentest to Thy passion
Amid their shouts of praise:
Thou reignest now in glory,
While we our anthems raise. [Chorus]

4 Thou didst accept their praises;
Accept the pray'rs we bring,
Who in all good delightest,
Thou good and gracious King. [Chorus]
