Gloron al la Dia Patro

Representative Text

Gloron al la Dia Patro,
Al la Filo donu ni,
Kaj al Sankta la Spirito;
Tri personoj, unu Di',
||: Gloron, gloron. :||
Per senfina laŭd-ari'.

Gloru lin, ĉar nin li amis,
Purigadis de malbon';
Per la propra sang' aĉetis,
Kronos per ĉiela kron'.
Gloron, gloron,
Al la sankta oferdon'.

Estro li de l' anĝelaro,
Kapo de la eklezi',
Reĝo de la naciaro,
De ĉiel' kaj tero Di'.
Gloron, gloron,
Ĝojakore kantu ni.

Gloron, benon, kaj laŭdadon
Himnas ka anĝela ĥor';
Honorado kaj potenco
Estu liaj kun ador':
Gloron, gloron,
Ricevadu la Sinjor'.

The three series of "Hymns of Faith and Hope," have passed through several editions. --Annotations of the Hymnal, Charles Hutchins, M.A. 1872… Go to person page >
