A setting of the Gloria (paraphrase) for congregation and keyboard, with optional descant or C Instrument. Based on the tune The Ashgrove. An easy and delightful setting from Malcolm's English Folk Song Mass. We've included the congregational part on the last page. The downloadable congregational parts are, of course, included with the full mass setting.
To God be the glory, all glory in the highest
and peace to his people who dwell here below,
Our heav'nly Father, our Lord, and our sov'reign,
to you, the Almighty, our praises bestow.
We worship and adore you,
we bow here before you
with grateful thanksgiving,
our song let us raise.
All glory and honour and glad adoration
to God in the highest, hosanna and praise.
Lord Jesus, the only begotten of the Father
we praise and we bless you, the Son and the Lamb.
The sin of the world you have taken upon you,
have mercy upon us, the Great I AM.
For holy, you meet us,
yet lowly you greet us,
the Lord in the highest,
the Holy One.
All glory to the Father, the Son and the Spirit,
From ages everlasting, the Three in One.
