IN EXCELSIS GLORIA!

Gloria! In Excelsis Gloria!
Gloria! In Excelsis Gloria!
Gloria! In Excelsis Gloria!
O, hear the angels singing Gloria!

In the night of quiet slumber
Came the sound of heaven’s chorus
Shepherds quaked by the sight
Star is shining brilliant bright!

Peace on earth
Goodwill to men
Hail the birth of
God’s own son
Sing Gloria!

O, hear the angels as they say
Unto you a child is born
In a manger He will lay
In Bethlehem on this morn

Peace on earth
Goodwill to men
Hail the birth of
God’s own son
Sing Gloria!

 Shepherds run to Bethlehem
To see the infant meek and lowly
At the manger hearts unfold
Praising God for He is able!

Gloria! In Excelsis Gloria!
Gloria! In Excelsis Gloria!
Gloria! In Excelsis Gloria!
O, hear the angels singing Gloria!
Gloria! Gloria! Sing Gloria!

EVERYTHING BELONGS TO GOD

The earth and everything in it is the Lord’s
The world and all its people belong to Him.
For He laid on the seas, the earth’s foundation
And built it on the ocean depths.

Open up, ancient gates!
Open up, ancient doors,
And let the King of glory enter.
Who is the King of glory?
The Lord, strong and mighty;
The Lord, invincible in battle.

Who may climb the mountain of the Lord?
Who may stand in His holy place?
Only those whose hands and hearts are pure,
Who don’t trust in idols and never tell lies.

Open up, ancient gates!
Open up, ancient doors,
And let the King of glory enter.
Who is the King of glory?
The Lord of Heaven’s Armies—
He is the King of glory.

They will receive the Lord’s blessing
And vindication from God their saviour.
Such people may seek You
and worship in Your presence, O God.

“Blessing and honour
And glory and power
Belong to the one
Sitting on the throne
And to the Lamb
Forever and ever.”
