97. ALORY be to God on high, U God, whose glory fills the sky; Peace on earth, and man forgiven, Man, the well-beloved of Heaven. Hail, by all Thy works adored ! Hail, the everlasting Lord ! All Thy glories we confess, Infinite and numberless. Holy Spirit, Thee we own; Thee, O Christ, the only Son! Lamb of God for sinners slain, Saviour of offending men. Praise the Name of God Most High; Praise Him, all below the sky; Praise Him, all ye heavenly host, Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
PARENT of all, whose love display'd
Still rules the world Thy bounty made, Fain would we raise the hymn to Thee, In substance One, in person Three. Fain would we chant to Thee the song, Which through the ages all along Is chanted by Thy heavenly train, And earth resounds to heaven again. Taught by Thy Word this festal day Our homage of true faith we pay: O in that faith preserve us still, And shield us evermore from ill: That still our lips Thy praise may show, And with Thy holy Church below, Above with Thy angelic host, Sing Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
