Glorious God King of Creation (Praise, Honour, and Glory are Yours)

Glorious God, King of creation, we praise you, we bless you, we worship you in song; Glorious God, in adoration, at your feet we belong.  Chorus: Lord of life, Father almighty, Lord of hearts, Christ the King, Lord of love, Holy Spirit, To whom we homage bring.   2  Glorious God, magnificent, holy, we love you, adore you, we come to you in prayer. Glorious God, mighty eternal we sing your praise everywhere.  3 Glorious God, King of creation,  we praise you, we bless you, we worship you in song. Glorious God, in adoration, at your feet we belong.  Coda: Praise, honour, and glory are yours. Praise, honor, and glory are yours
This song was written by South African born lay Franciscan Sebastian Temple (1928-1997).

It was first released on the recording Sing! People Of God, Sing! (St. Francis SFPC-1) in 1967 (ref).

Books where was published include:
The first of these is still in print, and likely to be the best current source of sheet music for the hymn.

It is set to an unnamed tune, also by Temple. This has a 6/8 time signature. In the key of Bb, the first few notes are D C B E EE.    This tune does seem vaguely reminiscent of the theme tune from Star Wars, although the nature of the link between them has not yet been identified.
