“All Glory, Laud and Honor”

All glory, laud and honor To Thee, Redeemer, King, To whom the lips of children Made sweet hosannas ring: Thou are the King of Israel, Thou David’s royal Son, Who in the Lord’s name com-est,

The King, and blessed One!


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

de-light-est, Thou good and gracious King!  Amen



The Old Rugged Cross”

On a hill far away stood an old rugged cross,

The emblem of suffering and shame;

And I love that old cross where the dearest and best

For a world of lost sinners was slain. 

So I’ll cherish the old rugged cross,

Till my trophies at last I lay down; I will cling to the

old rugged cross, And exchange it someday for a crown.


To the old rugged cross I will ever be true,

Its shame and reproach gladly bear;

Then He’ll call me someday to my home far away,

Where His glory forever I’ll share,

So I’ll cherish the old rugged cross,

Till my trophies at last I lay down; I will cling to the

old rugged cross, And exchange it someday for a crown.



‘Hosanna, Loud Hosanna”

Ho-san-na, loud ho-san-na The little children sang; Through pillared court and temple The lovely anthem rang; To Jesus, who had blessed them Close folded to His breast, The children sang their praises, The sim-plest and the best.


“Ho-san-na in the highest!” That ancient song we sing For Christ

 is our Redeemer, The Lord of heav’n, our King; O may we ever praise Him With heart and life and voice, And in His

bliss-ful presence, E-ter-nal-ly rejoice!
