Songs for Worship

Sing joyfully to the LORD, you righteous; it is fitting for the upright to praise him.  Praise the LORD with the harp; make music to him on the ten-stringed lyre. Sing to him a new song; play skillfully, and shout for joy.

Psalm 33:1-3 (NIV)

 

   

Glory To God

Background

This is the "Glory to God in the Highest" from the traditional western liturgy.  This setting is rather mild as a contemporary setting, more folk than rock.  This ancient text is a powerful hymn of praise to the Lord who has forgiven our sins, and hears our prayers.  Although written for the liturgy, it can be used as a praise song.

This setting can also be done in a more traditional manner with the organ.

 

Lyrics

Chorus
Glory to God in the highest
And peace to His people on earth
Glory to God in the highest
And peace to His people on earth

Verse 1
Lord God, You are our King
Almighty God and Father
We worship Your name
We give You our thanks
We praise You for Your great glory

Verse 2
Lord Jesus Christ only Son of the Father
Saving Lord, Lamb of God
You take away all the sins of the world
Have mercy on us
You reign at the right hand of the Father on high
Receive our prayer

Verse 3
For You alone are the Holy One
You alone are the Lord
You alone are the Savior, our Lord Jesus Christ
And we worship and lift You praise
With the Father above and Your Spirit of love
