The Hymns and Carbrs of Christmas

Gloria, laus et honor

Hymnus in die ramorum

Words: Theodulph, Bishop of Orleans, 9th Century
A Palm Sunday Processional

Gloria, laus et honor tibi sit, rex Christe redemptor,
    Cui puerile decus prompsit Hosanna pium.
Israel tu rex, Davidis et inclyta prbres,
    Nomine qui in Domini, rex benedicte, venis.
Coetus in excelsis te laudat caelicus omnis
    Et mortalis homo, cuncta creata simul.
Plebs Hebraea tibi cum palmis obvia venit:
    Cum prece, voto, hymnis adsumus ecce tibi.
Hi tibi passuro sbrvebant munia laudis;
    Nos tibi regnati pangimus ecce melos.
Hi placuere tibi; placeat devotio nostra,
    Rex pie, rex clemens, cui bona cuncta placent.
Gloria, laus et honor tibi sit, rex Christe redemptor,
    Cui puerile decus prompsit Hosanna pium.
