Glory To God In The Highest

Glory to God in the highest
And peace to His people on earth
Lord God, Heavenly King, Almighty God and Father
We worship You
We give You thanks
We praise You for Your glory

Lord Jesus Christ, only Son of the Father
Lord God, Lamb of God
You take away the sins of the world
Lord, have mercy on us
You are seated at the right hand of the Father
Receive our prayer

For You alone are the Holy One
For You alone are the Lord
For You alone are the Most High
Jesus Christ
With the Holy Spirit
In the glory of God the Father

Amen

STORY BEHIND THIS SON...

Glory to God in the highest. The song of the angels heralding the birth of the Christ Child and now the song of the Church.

Lord, may You receive all glory and honor, and grant that my heart might be free from seeking any for myself. It is with great joy that I worship You, One God in Three Persons. Amen.

In writing Christian music,
lyrics have to be
the heartbeat of the song.
After all, it is the lyrics
that primarily distinguish Christian music
from secular music.
It's not the only mark
of distinction,
but it is
the most important.
