    Glory to God on High

    Joyfully

    1. Glory to God on high!

    Let heav’n and earth reply.

    Praise ye his name.

    His love and grace adore,

    Who all our sorrows bore.

    Sing aloud evermore:

    Worthy the Lamb!

    2. Jesus, our Lord and God,

    Bore sin’s tremendous load.

    Praise ye his name.

    Tell what his arm has done,

    What spoils from death he won.

    Sing his great name alone:

    Worthy the Lamb!

    3. Let all the hosts above

    Join in one song of love,

    Praising his name.

    To him ascribed be

    Honor and majesty

    Thru all eternity:

    Worthy the Lamb!
