You can help us modernize! The present website has been online for a very long time and we want to bring it up to date. As of April 20, we are $4,600 away from our goal of $15,000 to fund the project. The fully redesigned site will be better for mobile, easier to read and navigate, and ready for the next decade. Please give today and join dozens of other supporters in making this important renovation possible!

Gloria in excelsis Deo,
et in terra pax hominibus bonae voluntatis
Laudamus te.
Benedicimus te.
Adoramus te.
Glorificamus te.
Gratias agimus tibi propter magnam gloriam tuam.
Domine Deus, Rex caelestis, Deus Pater omnipotens.
Domine fili unigenite, Jesu Christe.
Domine Deus, Agnus Dei, Filius patris.
Qui tollis peccata mundi, miserere nobis.
Qui tollis peccata mundi suscipe deprecationem nostram.
Qui sedes ad dexteram patris miserere nobis.
Quoniam tu solus sanctus.
Tu solus Dominus.
Tu solus Altissimus, Jesu Christe.
Cum Sancto Spiritu in gloria Dei Patris. Amen.

Ehre sei Gott in der Höhe

Language: German (Deutsch) after the Latin

Ehre sei Gott in der Höhe
und Friede auf Erden und den 
Menschen ein Wohlgefallen!
Wir loben dich, wir benedeien dich,
wir beten dich an, wir preisen dich,
wir sagen dir Dank um deiner großen
Herrlichkeit willen. Herr Gott!
Himmlischer König! Allmächtiger Vater!
Herr, du eingeborner Sohn, Jesu Christe!
Herr, Gott, du Lamm Gottes, Sohn des Vaters!
Der du die Sünde der Welt trägst, erbarme dich unser!
Der du die Sünde der Welt trägst, nimm an unser Gebet!
Der du sitzest zur Rechten des Vaters, erbarme dich unser!
Denn du allein bist heilig, denn du allein bist der Herr,
du allein bist der Allerhöchste,
Jesus Christus mit dem heiligen Geist
in der Herrlichkeit Gottes des Vaters. Amen!
