************************************************************************************************                               The New Missal

“The Gloria is a very ancient and venerable hymn in which the Church, gathered together in the Holy Spirit, glorifies and entreats God the Father and the Lamb”

Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to his people.                                                  We praise you,                                                                                                                           we bless you,                                                                                                                        we adore you,                                                                                                             we glorify you,                                                                                                             we give you thanks for your great glory,                                                                         Lord God, heavenly King, O God, almighty Father.

Lord Jesus Christ, only Begotten Son,

Lord God, Lamb of God, Son of the Father,

you take away the sins of the world,

          have mercy on us;

you take away the sins of the world

          receive our prayer

you are seated at the right hand of the Father ,

          have mercy on us.

For you alone are the Holy One,

you alone are the Lord,

you alone are the Most High,

Jesus Christ, with the Holy Spirit,

in the glory of God the Father. Amen.
