Refrain
Glory to God in heaven high above.
And on the earth be peace.
To all Godís love.

1. We worship you,
our hearts to you we raise,
the Father almighty,
God of all our praise. Refrain

2. Lord Jesus Christ,
the Fatherís only Son
O Lamb of God,
the victíry you have won. Refrain

3. You bore for us
the burden of our sin
Receive this our prayer
and grant us peace within. Refrain

4. Christ, you alone are Lord
with God Most High
and with the Spirit ó
God we glorify! Refrain
