(verses 1 - 3)
Glory and honour and praise be to you, Christ, King and Redeemer, to whom young children cried out loving Hosannas with joy. (Repeat Refrain)
King are you, King David’s magnificent offspring;
you are the ruler who come blest in the name of the Lord.
hosts on high unite in singing your praises;
men and women on earth and all creation join in.
branches of palm, Hebrews came crowding to greet you;
see how with prayers and hymns we come to pay you our vows.
offered gifts of praise to you, so near to your Passion;
see how we sing this song now to you reigning on high.
you were pleased to accept; now accept our gifts of devotion,
good and merciful King, lover of all that is good. (Refrain)
