Gloria in Excelsis Prayer

Glory to God in the highest,
and peace to his people on earth.

Lord God, heavenly King,
almighty God and Father,
we worship you, we give you thanks,
we praise you for your glory.

Lord Jesus Christ, only Son of the Father,
Lord God, Lamb of God,
you take away the sins of the world:
have mercy on us;
you are seated at the right hand of the Father:
receive our prayer.

For you alone are the Holy One,
you alone are the Lord,
you alone are the Most High,
Jesus Christ,
with the Holy Spirit,
in the glory of God the Father. Amen.

The best version of this I have heard is sung by John Michael Talbot. I don’t know the album, anyone know?

I’m pretty sure it’s on Songs for Worship Volume 1/2 which are now on 1 CD. You can find it at and buy directly from him.

Those of us in the broad catholic tradition are nodding and smiling and reminding your readers that in our churches you can hear the Gloria every Sunday!

This one?
Could be more than one version though.

“Glory to God” was originally on an album Talbot did for Sparrow Records in 1979 called, “The Lord’s Supper.” It was a bit controversial at the time, because the young contemporary Christian music scene had not at that point received any infusion from the Roman Catholic liturgical tradition. It has held up very well over the years!

Chaplain Mike hit it – I should have known it, that’s the one I was looking for. Ah well… (although the one I linked also has these lyrics).

You can find out for certain by going to and typing the artists’ name in the search box, then going to the albums>show more albums, which will take you to a listing of all of JMT’s recordings. Some artists have samples of each or most songs, but JMT has full recordings of each song (though you can only listen a few times to the entire recording.
As a whole, my favorite JMT album is “Heart of the Shepherd”. He’s going to be in Houston next month and we plan on going to see and hear.
