Glory unto God our Father,
Glory to the bleeding Lamb,
Glory to the cleansing Spirit,
Triune Godhead, great I Am.

Refrain

Glory, glory, chant it, fathers,
Glory, glory, mothers, sing;
Join the chorus, sons and daughters,
Every heart some tribute bring.

Glory in the highest, Glory
Glory to Emmanuel’s name;
Glory give in song and story,
Saints and angels chant the same.

Refrain

Glory His, whose blood hath bought us,
Richly on the cross outpoured.
Glory His, whose love hath sought us,
Father, be by all adored.

Refrain

Glory now, and glory ever,
Glory when affliction falls,
Glory give in each endeavor,
God in Christ to glory calls.
