The Liturgy of the Palms                                          page 297

Celebrant: The Holy Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ

                 according to Matthew 21:1-11

The Procession                                                         page 299

Processional Hymn:  All Glory Lord And Honour

Refrain:   All glory, laud and honour to thee, Redeemer, King, to whom the lips of children made sweet hosannas ring.



1.Thou art the King of Israel, thou David’s royal Son,

Who in the Lord’s name comest, the King and blessed one.


2.The company of angels are praising thee on high,    

And we with all creation in chorus make reply.


3.The people of the Hebrews with palms before thee went;

Our praise and prayer and anthems before thee we present.


4.To thee before thy Passion they sang their hymns of praise;

To thee now high exalted our melody we raise.


5.Thou didst accept their praises; accept the prayers we bring,

Who in all good delightest, thou good and gracious King.


The Collect for Palm Sunday                                   page 299                 


Processional Hymn: Ride On, Ride On In Majesty! 

1.Ride on, ride on in majesty! 

Hark! all the tribes “Hosanna” cry; O Saviour meek, pursue thy road with palms and scattered garments strowed.


2.Ride on, ride on in majesty!

In lowly pomp, ride on to die;

O Christ thy triumphs now begin o’er captive death and conquered sin.


3.Ride on, ride on in majesty! 

The angel-squadrons of the sky look down with sad and wondering eyes to see the approaching sacrifice.


4.Ride on, ride on in majesty!

Thy last and fiercest strife is nigh; the Father on his sapphire throne expects his own anointed Son.


5.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.

The Children’s Pageant

We Listen To God’s Word

Gradual Hymn: There Is A Green Hill Far Away      #202


The Passion Gospel according to Matthew:

(This is read in different voices and the congregation follows along on the sheets, joining in where the part is marked “All”.

We are seated for the first part of the story, and we stand at the point indicated by the Narrator.  Please leave these reading sheets in the pews at the end of the service.)


We Respond to God’s Word

The Apostle’s Creed                                                            page 189

The Prayers of the People:

Leader:    Our Lord comes to us humbly, riding a donkey and proclaiming a message of peace.

People:   We pray that Christians may hear and share the word of God as true disci­ples.

Leader:    In our diocese of Ottawa, let us pray for the parishes of St. George’s Clayton; St. John’s, Innisville; St. James, Franktown; for the chaplains of the Ottawa Fire Department and the Ottawa Police.  For the needs of the whole Church that we name silently or aloud (silence). For John our Bishop, for all bishops, for Andrea our Priest, for all the clergy and people. 

People:   We pray that all the ends of the earth may receive and welcome the words of the king of peace.

Leader:    We pray that all leaders, of church and of state, prefer humble service to empty power.

People:   We pray that we who hope to greet Jesus when he comes again will be ready and joyful.

Leader:    Within our Parish we pray for the sick and the suffering, especially (insert names), and for those we name silently or aloud (silence). We remember those who have died, especially (insert names), for those we name silently or aloud (silence).  For all who have followed Jesus in lives of faith.

People:   We pray that those who see the cross starkly revealed in their lives draw strength from the name above every other name.

Leader:    God our creator, you show your sons and daughters the way to free­dom through the gentle obedience of your Son Jesus Christ.

People:   Grant our petitions as we seek to follow him. We pray in his name, Christ the Lord. Amen.
