Hymnary Friends,

We don't often ask for money.

But, before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going.

You are one of more than half a million people who come here every month: worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and many more.

But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue.

Glory to God

Glory to God, all-pervading, all-knowing, all-seeing

Full Text

1 Glory to God, all-pervading, all-knowing, all-seeing,
saying the Word, bringing space-time and life into being,
holy and just,
faithful, and worthy of trust,
seeking and finding and freeing.

2 Glory to Christ, who has brought us through love's flowing waters,
new-born, beloved, and adopted as God's sons and daughters.
Chosen, we choose,
bearing and sharing good news -
humble and joyful reporters.

3 Praise to the Spirit, conceiving, communing, connecting,
eager for truth, every lie and evasion detecting,
bringing to view
gifts we ourselves never knew,
all in the end resurrecting.

4 Great Holy Trinity, graciously calling and sending
servants to follow the Servant, the friendless befriending,
as you ordain
friends to preside and proclaim,
power us with praises unending!
