213. 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,
God Almighty, Three in One!
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Glory be to him alone.

2 Glory be to him who loved us,
washed us from all sin and stain!
glory be to him who bought us,
made us kings with him to reign!
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Praise 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;
heav'n and earth your praises bring!
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
To the King of glory sing!

4 "Glory, blessing, praise eternal!"
Thus the choir of angels sings.
"Honor, glory, power, dominion!"
Thus its praise creation brings.
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Praise the mighty King of kings!
