All Glory Laud and Honour to Thee Redeemer King!!!Palm Sunday is here!

At the beginning of Holy week I would like to send a blessing to all my fellow Christians!May the deep rites and mysteries of the following week deepen the faith of all believers and refresh those who are discouraged.The Mystery of the Mass is a Great One

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 Lords Name comest,
The King and Blessed One!

The Company of Angels
Are praising Thee on high
And moral men and all things
Created make reply!

The people of the Hebrews
With palms before thee went
Our prayer and praise and anthems
Before thee we present!

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 prayers we bring
Who in all good delightest
Thou good and gracious King!

Hey! What a truly awesome thing we begin again this week! The sight of Jesus and God offering himself up on a platter to be cruelly killed, just so he can show us that we can live after physical death and be with him in Paradise if we believe in his promise to save us from death. This was the death Adam brought into this world. Of course with this comes our pledge to live a Holy life,not easy in this world! Trying to be holy is very difficult at times, but we all try the best we can. How fortunate people to whom has been given the depth of discernment of faith and the work of the Holy Spirit (God's 'worker'in our lives) Also the gift and security of that text:
Lo I am with you always, even to the End of Time.(Last verseof John)
In the Eucharist, and close to your heart!Always.Right from the Start.

Truly, All Glory Laud and Honour to Thee Redeemer (Saviour) King!

Ride on Ride on in Majesty!
Hark, all the tribes Hosannas Cry!
Thy humble beast pursues his road
With palms and scattered garments strowed!(scattered)

Ride on Ride on in Majesty
In lowly pomp ride on to die
O Christ thy triumph now begin
Oer captive death and conquered sin.

Ride on, Ride on in majesty
The winged squadrons of the sky
Look down with sad and wandering yes
To see the approaching Sacrifice!

Ride on ride on in Majesty
In lowly pomp ride on to die
Bow thy meek head to mortal pain
Then take, O God, thy power and reign!
H.H.Milman 1791-1868

All Praise to you forever and ever!- and thanks! Amen
