61 A SONG OF GOD’S GLORY
Gloria in excelsis Deo

1 Glory to God in the highest,*
and peace to God’s people on earth.
2 Lord God, heavenly King, almighty God and Father,*
we worship you, we give you thanks,
    we praise you for your glory.
3 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;
4 You are seated at the right hand of the Father:*
receive our prayer.
5 For you alone are the Holy One,*
you alone are the Lord,
6 You alone are the Most High, Jesus Christ,*
with the Holy Spirit,
   in the glory of God the Father. Amen.
