All Glory Laud and Honour

~ Theodulph of Orleans, 760-821
~ Translated by John M. Neale, 1818-1866

Stanza 1:

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.

Stanza 2:

The company of angels

Are praising Thee on high,

And mortal men and all things

Created make reply:

The people of the Hebrews

With psalms before Thee went;

Our praise and prayer and anthems

Before Thee we present.

Stanza 3:

To Thee, before Thy passion,

They sang their hymns of praise;

To Thee, now high exalted,

Our melody we raise:

Thou didst accept their praises -

Accept the praise we bring,

Who in all good delightest,

Thou good and gracious King!

Story Behind This Hymn

It is said that Theodulph of Orleans wrote this hymn 'All Glory Laud and Honour' while he was imprisoned in the cloister at Angers by King Louis the Pious in 818AD and died without gaining his freedom in 820AD. He was suspected of siding with the King's rivals.

This is a popular Christian hymn for Palm Sunday.

The original version of this hymn was much longer as it was to be sung during the procession in and around the church building.


Praise the LORD.
How good it is to sing praises to our God,
how pleasant and fitting to praise Him!

~ Psalm 147:1
