1. Glory be to God on high,
God whose glory fills the sky;
Peace on earth to man forgiven,
Man, the well-beloved of heaven.
2. Sovereign Father, heavenly King,
Thee we now presume to sing;
Glad, Thine attributes confess,
Glorious all, and numberless.
3. Hail, by all Thy works adored!
Hail, the everlasting Lord!
Thee with thankful hearts we prove
God of power, and God of love.
4. Christ our Lord and God we own,
Christ, the Father's only Son,
Lamb of God for sinners slain,
Saviour of offending man.
5. Bow Thine ear, in mercy bow,
Hear, the world's atonement, Thou!
Jesus, in Thy name we pray,
Take, O take our sins away!
6. Hear, for Thou, O Christ, alone
Art with God the Father one,
One the Holy Ghost with Thee,
One supreme, eternal Three.
