Trinitarian Glorias for Every Psalm


One of my favorite theologians, Fred Sanders, posted on Twitter that “Gerhoch of Reichersberg (1093-1169) wrote a ‘Glory be to the Father’ for the conclusion of every Psalm, deftly drawing out each Psalm’s imagery to provide terms for praising the persons of the Trinity. David Shaw has copied them all out in one place.” It was a good reminder of why I’m on Twitter. You can see Shaw’s post here or download them all as a PDF below. Here’s an example from Psalm 1:

Glory be to the Father, who knoweth the way of the righteous; glory be to the Son, who is the way of the righteous, the man who is blessed, and prosperous in whatsoever he doeth; glory be to the Holy Ghost, who is the wind that scattereth the ungodly;

As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be: world without end. Amen.
