Glory to God in the Highest!

Glory to God in the highest!
Glory to God! Glory to God!
Glory to God in the highest!
Shall be our song today;
Another year’s rich mercies prove
His ceaseless care and boundless love;
So let our loudest voices raise
Our glad and grateful song of praise.

Refrain

Glory to God in the highest!
Glory to God in the highest!
Glory, glory, glory, glory,
Glory be to God on high!
Glory, glory, glory, glory,
Glory be to God on high!

Glory to God in the highest!
Glory to God! Glory to God!
Glory to God in the highest!
Shall be our song today;
O, may we, an unbroken band,
Around the throne of Jesus stand,
And there with angels and the throng
Of His redeemed ones, join the song.

Refrain

**Lately, I have been thinking about what it means to give Glory to God. It is an odd thing really, to even think that we could begin to give Him Glory. I mean, I am weak and fragile and oh so very broken...and He is so GREAT and HOLY. How can I give Him anything? It is an awesome thing to wonder about because even though I don't really understand how to do it, I have this unmistakeable desire to do it. God, in His magnificient wisdom, has even planned on how to give Himself Glory through the flawed and futile efforts of His creation. Amazing.
