For Palm Sunday — 2016

Just a post to acknowledge that we’re entering Holy Week.

For those with an interest in revisiting the old, old story, you can do so, in its four variations, HERE.

And while we’re at it, let’s throw in a rendition of the classic Palm Sunday hymn All Glory, Laud and Honor as sung by the choir of Cambridge’s King’s College Chapel.

Refrain: All glory, laud, and honor / To Thee, Redeemer, King, / To whom the lips of children / Made sweet hosannas ring.

Thou art the King of Israel, / Thou David’s royal Son, / Who in the Lord’s name comest, / The King and Blessed One.

(Refrain)

The company of angels / Are praising Thee on high, / And mortal flesh and all things / Created make reply.

(Refrain)

To Thee, before Thy Passion, / They sang their hymns of praise; / To Thee, now high exalted, / Our melody we raise.

(Refrain)

[I can’t quite make out their fourth verse. They seem to depart from more common translations of this hymn]

(Refrain)

[on a personal note: Is there a chapel more beautiful than King’s? No. The answer is no. For another view — credit is owed to google image search for the pic.]
