Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Glory to God in the highest, and upon earth peace

Representative Text

Glory to God in the highest, and upon earth peace,
Good-will among men:
We praise Thee, we bless Thee, we give thanks to Thee,
We worship Thee, we glorify Thee,
For Thy great glory.
O Lord the King in heaven, God the Father Almighty,
O Lord the only-begotten Son, Jesus Christ,
And Holy Spirit:
O Lord God, Lamb of God, Son of the Father,
Who takest away the sins of the world, have mercy upon us:
O Thou who takest away the sins of the world, receive our prayer:
O Thou who sittest at the right hand of the Father, have mercy upon us:
For Thou only art holy, Thou only art the Lord,
Jesus Christ, to the glory of God the Father.

Every day will I bless Thee,
And praise Thy Name for ever,
And for ever and ever.
Vouchsafe, O Lord, through this day also
That we may be kept without sin,
Blessed art Thou, O Lord God of our fathers,
And praised and glorified be Thy Name
For ever and ever. Amen.

Blessed art Thou, O Lord: teach me Thy judgments.
Blessed art Thou, O Lord: teach me Thy judgments.
Blessed art Thou, O Lord: teach me Thy judgments.
O Lord, Thou hast been our refuge from generation to generation:
I have said: O Lord, have mercy upon me,
Heal my soul, for I have sinned against Thee.

O Lord, to Thee have I fled for refuge: teach me to do Thy will,
For Thou art my God,
For with Thee is the fountain of life.
In Thy light shall we see light:
Extend Thy mercy to them that know Thee.

Chatfield, Allen William, M.A., born at Chatteris, Oct. 2nd, 1808, and educated at Charterhouse School and Trinity College, Cambridge, where he was Bell's Univ. Scholar and Members' Prizeman. He graduated in 1831, taking a first class in classical honours. Taking Holy Orders in 1832, he was from 1833 to 1847 Vicar of Stotfold, Bedfordshire; and since 1847 Vicar of Much-Marcle, Herefordshire. Mr. Chatfield has published various Sermons from time to time. His Litany, &c. [Prayer Book] in Greek verse is admirable, and has been commended by many eminent scholars. His Songs and Hymns of Earliest Greek Christian Poets, Bishops, and others, translated into English Verse, 1876, has not received the attention of hymnal compilers which it merits.

Author: Anonymous

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 >
