Glory be to God on high, Al­le­lu­ia!
Let the whole cre­ation cry, Al­le­lu­ia!
Peace and bless­ing He has giv­en, Al­le­lu­ia!
Earth repeat the songs of Heav’en, Al­le­lu­ia!

Creatures of the field and flood, Al­le­lu­ia!
Earth and sea cry God is good, Al­le­lu­ia!
Toiling pil­grims raise the song, Al­le­lu­ia!
Saints in light the strain pro­long, Al­le­lu­ia!

Stars that have no voice to sing Al­le­lu­ia!
Give their glo­ry to our king, Al­le­lu­ia!
Silent pow­ers and an­gels’ song, Al­le­lu­ia!
All un­to our God be­long, Al­le­lu­ia!
