1 Glory be to God the Father,
Glory be to God the Son,
Glory be to God the Spirit:
Great Jehovah, Three in One!
While eternal ages run!
2 Glory be to Him who loved us,
Washed us from each spot and stain:
Glory be to Him who bought us,
Made us kings with Him to reign!
To the Lamb that once was slain!
3 Glory to the King of angels,
Glory to the Church’s King,
Glory to the King of nations;
Heav'n and earth, your praises bring!
To the King of glory sing!
4 Glory, blessing, praise eternal!
Thus the choir of angels sings:
Honor, riches, pow'r, dominion!
Thus its praise creation brings.
Glory to the King of kings!
