Palm Sunday 2007 - Palm Sunday 2012.
This great and holy day commemorates
the last triumph of Our Lord Jesus Christ on earth
and the opening of Holy Week.
The Cross lies ahead and is the means of victory.
Holy Week begins joyfully acclaiming
Christ the King.
Glory praise and honour to Thee,
O King Christ, the Redeemer:
to Whom children poured their glad and sweet
Gloria laus et honor tibi sit,
Rex Christe Redemptor...
[Hymn to Christ the King.]
V. Procedamus in pace.
Let us go forth in peace.
R. In Nomine Christi. Amen.
In the Name of Christ. Amen.
Let the faithful join with the Angels and children,
singing to the conqueror of death:
Hosanna in the highest!
We are prostrate amid shining palms before the Lord as He aproacheth;
let us all run to meet Him with hymns and songs,
glorify Him and say:
Blessed be the Lord!
As our Lord entered the holy city, Hebrew children,
declaring the resurrection of life with palm branches,
cried out: Hosanna in the highest.
