Glōria Patrī et Fīliō et Spīrituī Sanctō: sīcut erat in prīncipiō et nunc et semper et in saecula saeculōrum. Āmēn.
Glory [be] to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
The Gloria Patri, or minor doxology, or trinitarian doxology, had its form fixed in the fourth century. It is used in various Christian liturgies; among the Catholics, it is a prayer of the Mass and the Rosary.
We have supplemented the text with macrons to mark long vowels.
The translation is an English version used by Catholics, Orthodox and many Protestants. Note that the "world without end" is more a paraphrase than a translation. A more literal rendering is found in another version used in Eastern Orthodox prayers: Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, now and ever and unto ages of ages. Amen.
