Gloria Patri, qui creavit nos :  
Gloria Filio, qui redemit nos :  
Gloria spiritui sancto, qui sanctificavit nos.  
Gloria summae et individuae Trinitati, 
cuius opera inseparabilia sunt, 
cuius imperium sine fine manet. 
Te decet laus, te decet hymnus, 
tibi debetur omnis honor, 
tibi benedictio et claritas, 
tibi gratiarum actio, tibi honor, virtus, 
et fortitudo, Deo nostro, 
in saecula saeculorum.

Glory to the Father who created us
Language: English  after the Latin 
Glory to the Father who created us; 
glory to the Son who redeemed us;  
glory to the holy Spirit who sanctified us.  
Glory to the highest and undivided Trinity, 
whose works are inseparable, 
whose reign persists without end.  
You are worthy of praise, you are worthy of hymns, 
to you our God we owe honour, 
blessing and distinction, 
the action of grace, honour, virtue 
and strength, for ages of ages.
