Like the popular lyricist at Psalm 147:1 said: "Praise Jah! It is good to sing praises to our God; How pleasant and fitting it is to praise him!" If you haven't heard "Glory To God To The Highest" yet. Then let's go a little deeper into the popular this song.
According to Longman Dictionary of Contemporary English (Longman Dictionary of Contemporary English), Jesus/God is worthy of praise, honor, and thanksgiving.
The story of Luke 2:14 reads, "Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward mankind."
The word "glory" is used a lot in the Bible to talk about God's brilliance, holiness, and majesty.
Glory, in this sense, is often thought of as a person being able to feel God's presence in a real way. When the word glory is used in this way, it has a sense of weight and respect.
The song is inspired in a particular account of Luke particularly the moment when the army of angels heralding the birth of the Christ Child. "Glory to God in the highest, and peace on earth to those on whom God's favor rests." This is how Luke tells us about the night of Christ's birth. To help shepherds keep an eye on the night sky, the angels sang a song to them. They were the least desirable people, but night-watch shepherds were the best example of what Jesus came to do. This is a group of angels who are singing to undeserving sheperds.
The reason why the song is so famous is because of the beautiful and significant scenery happened in the past. Imagine the sky full of armies of angel singing and announcing the birth of the messiah. The powerful images from that day in history have been preserved perfectly through the ages, making them even more powerful.
Secondly, the story tells us about how our Heavenly Father shows humility. Take note that the shepherds were poor and uneducated, and God came to them with a group of angels.
Glory to God in the highest And peace to His people on earth Lord God, Heavenly King, Almighty God and Father We worship You We give You thanks We praise You for Your glory
Lord Jesus Christ, only Son of the Father Lord God, Lamb of God You take away the sins of the world Lord, have mercy on us You are seated at the right hand of the Father Receive our prayer
For You alone are the Holy One For You alone are the Lord For You alone are the Most High Jesus Christ With the Holy Spirit In the glory of God the Father
