Morning Hymn

Morning Hymn In the Apostolical Constitutions mention is made of a hymn for the morning, which is there, however, called the morning prayer. Other writers term it the hymn, the angelical hymn, and the great doxology. It ran in these words: "Glory be to God on high, on earth peace, good will towards men.. We praise thee, we laud thee, we bless thee, we glorify thee, we worship thee by the great High Priest, thee the true God, the only begotten, whom no one can approach, for thy great glory. O Lord, heavenly king, God the Father Almighty: Lord God, the Father of Christ, the immaculate Lamb, who taketh away the sin of the world, receive our prayer, thou that sittest upon the cherubims. For thou only art holy, thou only, Lord; Jesus, the Christ of God, the God of every created being, and our King. By whom unto thee be glory, honor, and adoration." This hymn was used daily in the ancient morning service, and is still used in the modern Greek Church.
