We bow our heads before Thee, and we laud And magnify thy name Almighty God! But man is thy most awful instrument In working out a pure intent.
Nocht is your fairnes bot ane faiding flour, Nocht is your famous laud and hie honour Bot wind inflat in uther mennis eiris.Robert Henryson
All glory, laud and honour To Thee,Redeemer, King, To whom the lips of children Made sweet hosannas ring.J(ames) M(ason) Neale

As it is inestimable, we seek not to win esteem for it; as it is beyond all praise, we bestow no praises upon it.samuel laman blanchard
The fear o' hell's the hangman's whip To laud the wretch in order; But where ye feel your honor grip, Let that aye be your border.Robert Burns
