Gloria Patri , also known as the Glory Be to the Father or, colloquially, the Glory Be , is a doxology , a short hymn of praise to God in various Christian liturgies. The second part is occasionally slightly modified and other verses are sometimes introduced between the two halves. In Orthodoxy , Arabic is one of the official liturgical languages of the Church of Jerusalem  and the Church of Antioch ,  both autocephalous Orthodox Churches and two of the four ancient Patriarchates of the Pentarchy. The Arabic wording of this doxology is as follows:. This differs from the Greek version because of the insertion of "Sicut erat in principio", which is now taken to mean "As it glory was in the beginning", but which seems originally to have meant "As he the Son was in the beginning", and echo of the opening words of the Gospel according to John : "In the beginning was the Word". In the Second Synod of Vasio in Gaul said in its fifth canon that the second part of the doxology, with the words Sicut erat in principio , was used in Rome, the East, and Africa, and ordered it to be said likewise in Gaul.
S — 1 Then the angel showed me the river of the water of life, bright as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb 2 through the middle of the street of the city; also, on either side of the river, the tree of life with its twelve kinds of fruit, yielding its fruit each month. The leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. Revelation O — One of the most powerful themes of the Revelation is that God is going to rectify all that went wrong with creation in the end. The curse of sin is forever broken and humans in the Kingdom will live as God intended: Worshiping and serving Him and loving one another.
The tradition derives from a similar practice in the Jewish synagogue ,  where some version of the Kaddish serves to terminate each section of the service. Among Christian traditions a doxology is typically an expression of praise sung to the Holy Trinity: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. It is common in high hymns for the final stanza to take the form of a doxology. Doxologies occur in the Eucharistic prayers , the Liturgy of the Hours , hymns, and various Catholic devotions such as novenas and the Rosary. The Gloria in excelsis Deo , also called the Greater Doxology, is a hymn beginning with the words that the angels sang when the birth of Christ was announced to shepherds in Luke Other verses were added very early, forming a doxology. It is called the "Lesser Doxology", thus distinguished from the "Great Doxology" Gloria in Excelsis Deo , and is often called simply " the doxology".
