Glory to God! the heav'ns adore!
Let earth resound God's praise therefore;
Author of peace forevermore!
Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!

Christ, God's own Son, the Lamb once slain,
salvation sure from sin to gain;
whose love cannot the world contain!
Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!

Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.
From God's own hand, extend your care
to grateful servants ev'rywhere.
Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!

Creator God, all praise we bring,
and of the Christ, in glory sing;
to the Great Spirit, hymns shall ring!
Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!
