Recording: Priory PRCD 707 

Refrain: 
All glory, laud and honour, 
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 blessèd one. 
Refrain: 
 
The company of angels 
Is praising Thee on high, 
And mortal men, and all things 
Created make reply. 
Refrain: 
 
The people of the Hebrews 
With palms before thee went; 
Our prayer and praise and anthems 
Before thee we present. 
Refrain: 
 
To thee, before thy passion, 
They sang their hymns of praise; 
To thee, now high exalted, 
Our melody we raise. 
Refrain: 
 
Thou didst accept their praises; 
Accept the prayers we bring, 
Who in all good delightest, 
Thou good and gracious king. 
Refrain: 
 
Within that blessed city 
thy praises may we sing, 
and ever raise hosannas 
to our most loving King.

SONG: GIVE TO OUR GOD IMMORTAL PRAISE 

Artist: Choir of St Paul’s Cathedral, Dunedin, Raymond White (dir) 
Words/Music: Watts/Griffiths 
Recording: Ely 105 

Give to our God immortal praise: 
mercy and truth are all his ways; 
wonders of grace to God belong; 
repeat his mercies in your song. 
 
Give to the Lord of lords renown; 
the King of kings with glory crown: 
his mercies ever shall endure, 
when lords and kings are known no more. 
 
He sent His Son with power to save 
from guilt and darkness and the grave; 
wonders of grace to God belong; 
repeat his mercies in your song. 
 
Through this vain world he guides our feet, 
and leads us to his heavenly seat: 
his mercies ever shall endure, 
when this our world shall be no more.

Artist: Choir of Westminster Abbey, James O’Donnell (dir), Robert Quinney (organ) 
Words/Music: C Wesley/Handel 
Recording: Hyperion 712801 

Rejoice, the lord is king! 
Your lord and king adore; 
Mortals give thanks and sing, 
And triumph evermore; 
Lift up your heart, 
Lift up your voice; 
Rejoice, again I say, rejoice! 
 
Jesus, the Saviour, reigns, 
The God of truth and love; 
When he had purged our stains, 
He took his seat above; 
Lift up your heart, 
Lift up your voice; 
Rejoice, again I say, rejoice! 
 
His kingdom cannot fail, 
He rules o’er earth and heav’n; 
The keys of death and hell 
Are to our Jesus giv’n; 
Lift up your heart, 
Lift up your voice; 
Rejoice, again I say, rejoice! 
 
He sits at God’s right hand 
Till all his foes submit, 
And bow to his command, 
And fall beneath his feet: 
Lift up your heart, 
Lift up your voice; 
Rejoice, again I say, rejoice! 

SONG: RIDE ON, KING JESUS! 

Artist: Mormon Tabernacle Choir 
Words/Music: Trad/Trad 
Recording: Bonneville 510097 

Ride on King Jesus! 
No man can hinder me 
Ride on King Jesus, ride on! 
No man can hinder me. 
 
For he is King of Kings 
he is Lord of Lords 
O Jesus Christ, the first and last 
No man works like him. 
 
For he is King of Kings 
and he is Lord of Lords 
O Jesus Christ, the first and last 
No man works like him. 
 
King Jesus rides a milk white horse 
no man works like him. 
The river Jordan he did cross 
No man works like him 
 
He is King of Kings 
he is Lord of Lords 
O Jesus Christ, the first and last 
No man works like him. 
 
King Jesus rides in the middle of the air 
no man works like him. 
 
O won’t you ride on, King Jesus 
No man can hinder me. 
Ride on, King Jesus, ride on! 
No man can hinder me. 
 
For he is King of Kings 
he is Lord of Lords 
O Jesus Christ, the first and last 
No man works like him. 
 
For he is King of Kings 
he is Lord of Lords 
O Jesus Christ, the first and last 
No man works like him 

SONG: JESUS, REMEMBER ME 

Artist: St Thomas’ Music Group 
Words/Music: Bertier 
Recording: Alliance Music 

Jesus, remember me  
when you come into your kingdom.  
Jesus, remember me  
when you come in to your kingdom. 

SONG: WORSHIP THE LORD IN THE BEAUTY OF HOLINESS 

Artist: Cantus Choro 
Words/Music: Monsell/Anon 
Recording: Move 743142 

Worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness; 
bow down before Him, His glory proclaim; 
gold of obedience and incense of lowliness 
bring, and adore him; the Lord is his Name! 
 
Low at his feet lay thy burden of carefulness, 
high on his heart he will bear it for thee, 
comfort thy sorrows, and answer thy prayerfulness, 
guiding thy steps as may best for thee be. 
 
Fear not to enter his courts in the slenderness 
of the poor wealth thou wouldst reckon as thine; 
truth in its beauty, and love in its tenderness, 
these are the offerings to lay on His shrine. 
 
These, though we bring them in trembling and fearfulness, 
he will accept for the Name that is dear; 
mornings of joy give for evenings of tearfulness, 
trust for our trembling, and hope for our fear. 
 
Worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness; 
bow down before Him, His glory proclaim; 
gold of obedience and incense of lowliness 
bring, and adore him; the Lord is his name! 

SONG: WE SING THE PRAISE OF HIM WHO DIED 

Artist: Choir of St Mary’s Episcopal Cathedral, Edinburgh 
Words/Music: Kelly/Nicholson 
Recording: Priory PRCD 707 

We sing the praise of him who died, 
of him who died upon the cross; 
the sinner's hope let men deride, 
for this we count the world but loss. 
 
Inscribed upon the cross we see 
in shining letters, 'God is love'; 
he bears our sins upon the tree; 
he brings us mercy from above. 
 
The cross! It takes our guilt away: 
it holds the fainting spirit up; 
it cheers with hope the gloomy day, 
and sweetens every bitter cup. 
 
It makes the coward spirit brave, 
and nerves the feeble arm for fight; 
it takes its terror from the grave, 
and gilds the bed of death with light: 
 
The balm of life, the cure of woe, 
the measure and the pledge of love, 
the sinner's refuge here below, 
the angels' theme in heaven above. 

SONG: RIDE ON, RIDE ON IN MAJESTY 

Artist: Choir of All Saints, Margaret St, London 
Words/Music: Milman/Dykes 
Recording: Priory PRCD 707 

Ride on, ride on, in majesty! 
Hark! all the tribes hosanna cry; 
O Saviour meek, pursue your road 
With palms and scattered garments strowed. 
 
Ride on, ride on, in majesty! 
In lowly pomp ride on to die! 
O Christ! Your triumph now begin 
O’er captive death and conquered sin. 
 
Ride on, ride on, in majesty! 
Your last and fiercest strife is nigh; 
The father, on his sapphire throne, 
Awaits his own anointed son. 
 
Ride on, ride on, in majesty! 
In lowly pomp ride on to die; 
Bow your meek head to mortal pain, 
Then take, O God, your power, and reign.
