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

Language: French (Français) after the Greek (Ελληνικά)

Gloire à Dieu dans les hauteurs,
Paix aux hommes sur la terre !
Aux hommes qui l'attendaient
Dans leur bonne volonté.

Le salut vient sur la terre...
Gloire à Dieu dans les hauteurs

Nous te louons, bénissons,
Adorons, glorifions,

Te rendons grâce et merci
De cette gloire infinie !

Seigneur, Dieu, roi du ciel,
Père, Puissance éternelle,

Fils unique de Dieu,
Agneau de Dieu, Fils du père,

Vous effacez les péchés :
Vous aurez pitié de nous.

Vous effacez les péchés :
Vous écouterez nos vœux.

Vous, à la droite du Père,
Vous aurez pitié de nous.

Car vous êtes le seul Saint,
Seul Seigneur et seul Très Haut,

Jésus, qui fûtes oint
De très loin et de très haut,

Dieu des cieux, avec l'Esprit,
Dans le Père,
Ainsi soit-il.
