GLORY VERSE “Glory verse,” “Glory” and “Doxastichos” mean a hymn (usually to a saint) that is sung after “Glory to the Father …” but before “Now and ever …” The expressions “The saint has a glory,” “there is a glory,” “glory for the saint (if there is one)” etc. refer to such a hymn. When there is “no glory,” this means that there is no such hymn prescribed and therefore we sing “Glory to the Father . . . Spirit” followed immediately by “now and ever . . . Amen.” with no intervening hymn (and this is what is denoted by “glory and now:”)
