A doxology (Ancient Greek: δοξολογία doxologia, from δόξα, doxa, “glory” and -λογία, -logia, “saying”) is a short hymn of praises to God in various forms of Christian worship, often added to the end of canticles, psalms, and hymns. What is known as “the doxology” is almost always sung at the end of a worship service.

The doxology below was written by Fintan O’Carrol and Christopher Walker and is taken from the Japan Episcopal Hymnal No. 579. It is sung by Sachiko Koyakumaru, singing melody, and Saori Hotta who sings the harmony. It is simply two words, words that are the same in every language spoken on earth ⏤ HALLELUJAH, Amen ⏤ and it brings great glory to God in the end.
