Kyrie & Gloria: Missa de Angelis (click here)
1 Crown him with many crowns,
the Lamb upon his throne.
Hark! how the heavenly anthem drowns
all music but its own.
Awake, my soul, and sing
of him who died for thee,
and hail him as thy matchless king
through all eternity.
2 Crown him Virgin’s Son,
The God incarnate born,
Whose arm the crimson trophies won
Which now his brow adorn:
Fruit of the mystic Rose,
as of that Rose the Stem;
The Root whence mercy ever flows,
the Babe of Bethlehem.
3 Crown him the Lord of love;
behold his hands and side,
rich wounds, yet visible above,
in beauty glorified;
no angels in the sky
can fully bear that sight,
but downward bends their burning eye
at mysteries so bright.
4 Crown him the Lord of years,
the potentate of time,
creator of the rolling spheres,
Glassed in a sea of light,
Where everlasting waves
Reflect his throne – the Infinite!
Who lives – and loves – and saves.
Liturgy of the Eucharist
All glory, laud, and honor
to you, Redeemer, King,
to whom the lips of children
made sweet hosannas ring.
2 Thou art the King of Israel
Thou David’s royal Son,
Who in the Lord’s name comest,
the King and Blessed One. [Refrain]
3 The people of the Hebrews
with palms before thee went;
our praise and prayer and anthems
before thee we present. [Refrain]
4 To thee before thy passion
they sang their hymns of praise;
to thee, now high exalted,
our melody we raise. [Refrain]

Agnus Dei : Missa de Angelis (click here)
1 Alleluia! Sing to Jesus;
His the sceptre, His the throne.
Alleluia! His the triumph,
His the victory alone.
Hark! The songs of peaceful Zion
thunder like a mighty flood;
“Jesus out of ev’ry nation
has redeemed us by His blood.
2 Alleluia! Not as orphans
are we left in sorrow now.
Alleluia! He is near us;
faith believes, nor questions how.
Though the cloud from sight received Him
when the forty days were o’er,
shall our hearts forget His promise,
“I am with you evermore”?
3 Alleluia! Bread of Angels,
here on earth our food, our stay.
Alleluia! Here the sinful
flee to Thee from day to day.
Intercessor, Friend of sinners,
earth’s Redeemer, plead for me,
where the songs of all the sinless
sweep across the crystal sea.
4 Alleluia! King eternal,
Thee the Lord of Lords we own;
Alleluia! born of Mary,
Earth thy footstool, heaven thy throne:
Thou within the veil hast entered,
Robed with flesh, our great High Priest,
Thou on earth both Priest and Victim
In the Eucharistic Feast.
