Processional Hymn: All Glory, Laud, and Honour. ELW 344


All glory, laud, and honor to you, redeemer, king,

to whom the lips of children made sweet hosannas ring.

1 You are the king of Israel and David’s royal Son,

now in the Lord’s name coming, the King and Blessed One. [Refrain]

2 The company of angels is praising you on high;

creation and all mortals in chorus make reply. [Refrain]

3 The multitude of pilgrims with palms before you went;

our praise and prayer and anthems before you we present. [Refrain]

4 To you, before your passion, they sang their hymns of praise. To you, now high exalted, our melody we raise. [Refrain]

5 Their praises you accepted; accept the prayers we bring,

great author of all goodness, O good and gracious King. [Refrain]

P: Blessed is he who comes in the name of God. C: Hosanna in the highest!

Prayer of the Day:

Everlasting God, in your endless love, you came to earth to be among us as both servant and King. In your mercy, enable us to share in his compassion and by your spirit, keep us in the joyful procession of those who confess Jesus as King.
