Words of Praise

If you belong to a liturgical church, you’ve probably heard this word: doxology. Doxology is defined as:

“an expression of praise to God, especially a short hymn sung as part of a Christian worship service.”

It comes from the Greek word, doxa, which means glory, splendor or grandeur, and logos, word or speaking.

The doxology which I am most familiar with was written in 1674 by Thomas Ken, a priest in the Church of England. What a great way to start the day! Feel free to sing as well as listen!
