And They Say The Dutch Reformers Invented Covenant Theology!

All glory, laud and honor 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 is the Lord's name comest, the King and blessed One!

The company of angels are praising Thee on high,
And mortal men and all things creating make reply:
The people of the Hebrews with palms before Thee went:
Our praise and prayer and anthems before Thee we present.

To Thee, before Thy passion, they sang their hymns of praise;
To Thee, now high exulted, our melody we raise:
Thou didst accept their praises - accept the praise we bring,
Who in all good delightest, Thou good and gracious King!

(Theodulph of Orleans c. 800AD)

And people say the Dutch Reformers invented Covenant Theology!
