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!

In some hymnals, the editors noted that a hymn's author is unknown to them, and so this artificial "person" entry is used to reflect that fact. Obviously, the hymns attributed to "Author Unknown" "Unknown" or "Anonymous" could have been written by many people over a span of many centuries. Go to person page >
