1 Glory be to God on high,
God whose glory fills the sky!
Lift your voice, ye people all,
Praise the God on whom ye call.
2 God his sov'reign sway maintains
King over all the earth he reigns.
All to him lift up their eye;
He does ev'ry want supply
3 Sons of earth the triumph join
Praise him with the host divine
Emulate the heavenly pow'rs:
Their allgracious God is ours
4 Happy who his laws obey!
Them he rules with mildest sway.
Pure and holy hearts alone
He hath chosen for his own
5 Him, whose joy is to restore,
Him let all our hearts adore:
Earth and heaven repeat the cry,
Glory be to God on high!
