11. Glory Be to God the Father

1 Glory be to God the Father,
glory be to God the Son,
glory be to God the Spirit:
Great Jehovah, Three in One!
Glory, glory 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,
now with God on high to reign!
Glory, glory 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;
heaven and earth, your praises bring!
Glory, glory to the King of glory sing!

4 Glory, blessing, praise eternal!
Thus the choir of angels sings:
honor, riches, power, dominion!
Thus its praise creation brings.
Glory, glory, glory to the King of kings!
