Worship we the King of heaven; praise and bless his holy name. Chorus: Glory, glory, sing his glory. Glory to our God on high. 2 Sing to Christ, the Father's loved one, Jesus, Lord and Lamb of God; hear our prayer, O Lord, have mercy, You who bear the sin of men. 3 Sing to Christ, the Lord and Saviour, Seated there at God's right hand: hear our prayer, O Lord, have mercy, you alone the Holy One. 4 Glory sing to God the Father, glory to his only Son, glory to the Holy Spirit, glory to the three in one.
