Lyrics

Glory to the Father give,
God in whom we move and live;
Children’s prayers He deigns to hear,
Children’s songs delight His ear.

Glory to the Son we bring,
Christ our prophet, priest and king;
Children, raise your sweetest strain
To the Lamb, for He was slain.

Glory to the Holy Ghost,
Be this day a Pentecost;
Children’s minds may He inspire,
Touch their tongues with holy fire.

Glory in the highest be
To the blessèd Trinity,
For the Gospel from above,
For the word that God is love.
