Glory to you who has shown us the light.
Glory to God in the highest and on earth
peace, goodwill to all people.
We praise you,
we bless you,
we worship you,
we glorify you,
we give thanks to you for your great glory.
Lord, the only-begotten Son,
Jesus Christ, and Holy Spirit.
Lamb of God,
Son of the Father
who take away the sin of the world,
have mercy on us,
you who take away the sins of the world.
Receive our prayer,
you who sit at the right hand of the Father,
and have mercy on us.
For you only are holy, only you are Lord
Jesus Christ, to the glory of God the Father. Amen.
Each day I shall bless you,
and I will praise your name forever and to the ages of ages.
