try

Select 'Grant EXEC on "' concat ProcShema concat '"."' concat procname
 concat '" to XYZ ' from syscat.procedures
 where procshema='schemaname'
order by 1

is the USER before xyz required?

the stored procedure can be executed by anybody with privileges to the object(s) that the stored procedure references-you only grant execute on packages, not Sp's.

If the authorization ID has insufficient authority to perform the operation, an error (SQLSTATE 42502) is raised.
