Glory to God in the Highest,
Glory to God let us sing,
Glory to God in His Heaven,
Glory to Jesus, our King.

Glory to God in the Highest,
Peace on this earth here below;
Jesus has come to redeem us,
To free us from sin and from woe.

As love is the law in the heavens,
So love shall be law upon earth,
By love shall each man be a free-man,
Born anew by the heavenly Birth.

Glory to God in the Highest,
Glory to God let us sing,
Glory to God in His Heaven,
Glory to Jesus, our King.
