As I was looking for hymns and choruses for Palm Sunday, here's what I came up with:

  • "All Glory, Laud, and Honor," words: Theodulph of Orleans (c. 820), translated by John M. Neale (1851) and music: "St. Theodulf" by Melchoir Teschner (1615)

  • "Crown Him with Many Crowns," words: Matthew Bridges (1852), Godfrey Thring (1874), Music: George J. Elvey (1868)
  • "Come, Faithful People," words: Gerard Moultrie (1867), music: C. Bicknell or "Greenwell", William J. Kirkpatrick.
  • "Here Comes the King," by Nick Robertson (c 2010, Consuming Praise Songs)

    Loudest hosannas, Jesus is King!"
  • "The King Is Coming," Bill and Gloria Gaither, Charles Milhuff ( 1970, William J. Gaither). Really a Second Coming theme
  • "Triumphal Entry," by Dwight M. Pratt (1888), and Charles C. Treat
