The Gloria (An Ancient Canticle)

Glory to God, who has shown us the Light!
Glory to God in the highest, and on earth, peace, good will toward men!

We praise You! We bless You! We worship You!
We glorify You and give thanks to You for Your great glory!

O Lord God, Heavenly King, God the Father Almighty!
O Lord, the Only-begotten Son, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit!
O Lord God, Lamb of God, Son of the Father, Who take away the sins of the world, have mercy on us!
You, Who take away the sins of the world, receive our prayer!
You, Who sit on the right hand of the Father, have mercy on us!

For You alone are holy, and You alone are Lord.

You alone, O Lord Jesus Christ, are most high in the glory of God the Father! Amen!

I will give thanks to You every day and praise Your Name for ever and ever.

Lord, You have been our refuge from generation to generation!

I said, “Lord, have mercy on me. Heal my soul, for I have sinned against You!”

Lord, I flee to You, Teach me to do Your will, for You are my God. For with You is the fountain of Life, and in Your light shall we see light. Continue Your lovingkindness to those who know You.
O Lord, keep us this day without sin.

Blessed are You, O Lord, the God of our fathers and mothers, and praised and glorified is Your Name for ever. Amen.  Let Your mercy be upon us, O Lord, even as we have set our hope on You.

Blessed are You, O Lord; teach me Your ways.
Blessed are You, O Master; make me understand Your commandments.
Blessed are You, O Holy One; enlighten me with your Word.
Your mercy endures forever, O Lord! Do not despise the works of your hands!

To You belongs worship, to You belongs praise, to You belongs glory:

To the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit, now and forever. Amen.
