Luke 2:14; John 1:29, Revelation 5:9-14; Ephesians 1:20-21 The Hymn of the Day is “All Glory Be to God on High” (LSB #947). The original Gloria in Excelsis Deo was sung by a choir of angels at the announcement of the birth of Christ. Christmas won’t come for another eight months but every time we as Christians gather we are given opportunity to sing the praises of our God. Together we will gather to praise the name of our God – Father, Son and Holy Spirit. May our God remain at the center of our life and worship.
1 All glory be to God on high And thanks for all His favor;
No harm can touch or terrify A child of God forever.
God shows His good and gracious will And grants His peace, the world to fill—
All strife at last has ended.
O Father, for Your rule is true And just and changes never.
With boundless pow’r, Your mighty reign Fulfills whatever You ordain.
Lord, grant us ev’ry blessing!
Your saving death has made us one With God and with each other.
O Lamb of God, to You on high in our distress we sinners cry,
Have mercy on us, amen!
Protect us from the devil’s might Through Jesus, our salvation,
Who by His death upon a tree Has rescued us from misery:
To this we hold forever.
