Glory To God – The Gloria
We always seek to give all honor, praise, and glory to God. The following is the text of The Gloria. It is usually sung but may be recited. There are several different versions of the music and some of the lines may be repeated. The parish congregation recites or sings the Gloria in accordance with the music arrangement.
Glory to God in the highest,
and, peace to his people on earth. Lord God, heavenly King, almighty God and Father, we worship you, we give you thanks, we praise you for your glory.
Lord Jesus Christ, only Son of the Father,
Lord God, Lamb of God,
you take away the sin of the world: have mercy on us; you are seated at the right hand of the Father: receive our prayer.
For you alone are the Holy One,
you alone are the Lord,
you alone are the Most High, Jesus Christ,
with the Holy Spirit,
in the glory of God the Father. Amen.
