Blessed

There are some traditions I absolutely love.

Here are two of them.

Doxology

Praise God, from Whom all blessings flow;
Praise Him, all creatures here below;
Praise Him above, ye heavenly host;
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.

Listen

We sing the Doxology every single Sunday after the offering is received. It never gets old.

~~~~~~~~~~

Glory Be To The Father (Gloria Patri)

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost;
As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be,
World without end. Amen, Amen.

Listen

I wish we'd sing this more often but it is always a joy when we close our service with Gloria Patri.

Have a blessed night and a great Monday.

We sing the doxology after the offering too!
My husband and I have been doing this for over 4 decades.
And guess what?
He sings 'Praise Him above THE heavenly host'!
It makes sense. But I like the idea of the angels etc. singing right along with us!
Speaking of favorite songs- I can't wait to sing 'Let All Things Now Living' and 'We Gather Together'for Thanksgiving!!!!!!!
Amen! Amen!

I'm more of a contemporary Christian music kind of girl, but I love singing the Doxology as a church...it always gives me shivers on my arms!

As a church body, I also love it when we sing "Blest Be The Tie That Binds." Beautiful song.

My favorite Thanksgiving song is Harvest Home also called Come Ye Thankful People Come. But I always LOVE The Gloria Patri and we will sing it around the table on TD. If only it was as easy to sing as it looks :)

I learned the doxology at Honey Rock Camp.
We sang it before the meals.
It was also my introduction to singing in parts.

Sweet!
