Lyrics

Glory to the Fa­ther give,
God in whom we move and live;
Children’s prayers He deigns to hear,
Children’s songs delight His ear.

Glory to the Son we bring,
Christ our prophet, priest and king;
Children, raise your sweetest strain
To the Lamb, for He was slain.

Glory to the Holy Ghost,
Be this day a Pentecost;
Children’s minds may He inspire,
Touch their tongues with holy fire.

Glory in the highest be
To the blessèd Trinity,
For the Gos­pel from above,
For the word that God is love.
