Gloria in Excelsis Deo

Gloria in Excelsis Deo is a hymn of Christian liturgy, sung during Mass and other religious celebrations. Known also as the Angelic Hymn, the prayer echoes the words of the Angels announcing to the shepherds the birth of Jesus Christ in Bethlehem. Gloria is a song of praise to the Holy Trinity: it mentions God the Father, His Only Son, and the Holy Spirit. This Latin prayer was translated from its original Greek version.
