Glory and honor to god our heav’nly Father,
Praise and adore Him who reigns in might and majesty.
Tell of His goodness, proclaim His name to ev’ry land
Till all the nations shall own Him King forevermore.
Sing and give praise to the Lord the King of kings,
For He is good He is good and His mercy everlasting.
Sing to the Lord, tho’ a host encamp against thee,
For His pow’r and His love o’ershadow thee.
Sing praise to the God of battles. Glory and honor to the God of our salvation!
Glory and honor to God our Sun and Shield!
O lift joyous songs of praise,
Praise for all His loving kindness.
Give to God the worship due his name, give glory and praise
