I wish I could crash like the waves;
Turn like the autumn leaves
In effort to praise you.
I wish I could smell like the forest;
The fragrance lifting a mighty chorus
In effort to praise you.
In effort to praise you.
But I'm such a limited creature,
And my words can only paint so many pictures.
But somewhere I think I read
That I am treasured over all creation.
So I know that I must try.

I wish I could roll like the thunder
To leave the earth below in wonder
In effort to praise you.
I wish I could fall like the summer rain,
And every drop would sing your name
In effort to praise you.
In effort to praise you.
But I'm such a limited creature,
And my words can only paint so many pictures.
But somewhere I'm sure I read
That I am treasured over all creation.
So I know that I must try.
I must try.

[Chorus]
Gloria, glory in the highest.
Forever I will hide myself in thee.
Oh, Gloria, glory in the highest.
Forever I will hide myself in thee.

Every breath that I breathe,
Every moment in my history
Is an effort to praise you;
An effort to praise you.
Glory in the highest.
Forever I will hide myself in thee.
Oh, Gloria, glory in excelsis deo.
Gloria, Gloria, Gloria
Gloria, Gloria.
