Zum Gloria

Language: German (Deutsch)

Ehre, Ehre sey Gott in der Höhe!
Singet der Himmlischen selige Schaar.
Ehre, Ehre sey Gott in der Höhe!
Stammeln auch wir, die die Erde gebar.
Staunen nur kann ich, und staunend mich freu'n;
Vater der Welten! doch stimm' ich mit ein:
Ehre sey Gott in der Höhe!

Ehre, Ehre sey Gott in der Höhe!
Kündet der Sterne strahlendes Heer.
Ehre, Ehre sey Gott in der Höhe!
Säuseln die Lüfte, brauset das Meer.
[Feyrender]1 Wesen unendlicher Chor
Jubelt im ewigen Danklied' empor:
Ehre sey Gott in der Höhe!
